Hours-Long Police Standoff Ends With Raid On Empty House

An 11-hour police standoff following a reported domestic dispute is now over, after officers raided the home and realized it was empty.

Police surrounded a neighborhood in Redford, Michigan, just after 12 a.m. Saturday after getting reports about a domestic situation between a woman and a man who was possibly armed.

Police issued an alert around 2:30 a.m. warning residents to avoid the area as officers blocked off several streets in the neighborhood.

The standoff went for roughly 11 hours before officers made the decision to enter the home but once inside, police quickly realized that no one was there.

An investigation is ongoing. Police are expected to release more information Saturday afternoon.
