Police: 2 men found dead inside Memphis home after standoff


MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Two men are dead and a Memphis police officer has been slightly injured following an hours-long standoff.

Multiple media outlets report the incident took place at a Hickory Hill home on Tuesday evening.

Police were called to the residence after receiving a call from a woman saying her son had killed his brother. Police say minutes later, the suspect called 911 and admitted that he did kill his brother.

Police responded to the home, where authorities say the suspect shot at officers, striking the boot of 32-year-old Officer Jason Winburn. The bullet didn't penetrate his skin.

The suspect then barricaded himself inside the home.

Memphis police spokeswoman Sgt. Karen Rudolph says the suspect and his brother were both found dead after police entered the home about three hours later.
