DETROIT (AP) - Police say a 14-hour standoff in Detroit has ended with the deaths of three women and the suspected gunman and three officers getting shot.

Michigan State Police Lt. Michael Shaw said his officers used a robot Monday to enter a home and confirm the gunman and third female victim were dead from gunshot wounds.

Detroit police say the standoff began Sunday night after two women were fatally shot during an apparent argument and the wounding of three officers - two from the Detroit Police Department and an off-duty officer from the Detroit Public Schools Police Department. Police say the wounds to all three weren't believed to be life-threatening.

Detroit Assistant Chief Arnold Williams says officers came under fire at the scene on the city's east side about 10:30 p.m. Sunday.
