Authorities say it began when the suspect assaulted his girlfriend during an argument at a bar. He then went home and began fighting with his girlfriend’s mother. That’s when, police say, the man pulled a gun and shot the woman in her arm.

Police say she managed to escape the home and was taken to Presbyterian Hospital in stable condition.

The man barricaded himself inside the home for several hours.

While barricaded, he turned on the gas in the home forcing authorities to shut the gas off on the entire block.
