CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a man has died after a standoff with officers in Charleston County.

Deputies say they got a call Friday morning from a man who said his sister had been shot by her boyfriend. Deputies found a woman who had been shot, and she was taken to the hospital.

Deputies heard at least one gunshot from inside the home and secured the scene. After trying to communicate with the man for several hours but getting no answer, officers found a handgun in the same room where 25-year-old Cordrell Bennett of North Charleston was found breathing but unresponsive.

Bennett later died from a gunshot wound at the hospital at about 3:45 a.m. Saturday.
