The Kenosha News reports a SWAT team activated a noise-making device and entered the home where the standoff was taking place about 3 p.m. Wednesday. Police later confirmed the death and arrest. WISN-TV reports the standoff started about 5 a.m., when a man called police and said his brother had shot and killed a woman in the home.
The Kenosha County Tactical Team arrived about 6:30 a.m. and began hours of negotiations. When those negotiations were unsuccessful, the tactical team forced its way into the house where officers took the man into custody and found the gunman's long-time girlfriend dead in the basement of an apparent gunshot wound.
