MODESTO, CA - Police end an eight hour standoff with an armed man refusing to come out of Modesto home.

Modesto police responded to the 1300 block of Rumble Road around 1 p.m. after getting a call about a domestic dispute, Modesto Police Officer Chris Adams said. A woman told police she and her husband got into an argument and that there were weapons in the home.

By the time officers got to the scene, the wife was able to escape from her husband, but the man remained in the home. The woman was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

Adams said the woman reported hearing a gunshot from inside of the home.

Officers believe the man is inside of the home alone. Six home immediately surrounding the home were evacuated but have since returned to their homes.
