Officers worked a barricade situation in the northwest valley Saturday afternoon, the Metropolitan Police Department said.

At about 1:45 p.m., police responded to a “domestic-related incident” in the area of Rebecca Road and West El Campo Grande Avenue, near West Tropical Parkway, Metro spokesman Lt. CJ Jenkins said.

The incident involved the man’s wife, Jenkins said, but was alone in the residence when police arrived.

At least two shots were fired inside the home, Metro said.

The man was taken into custody about 8 p.m. and transported to University Medical Center for a self-inflicted gunshot graze.
