WINDOM, Minn. (AP) - Authorities say a man was found dead after a police standoff in southwestern Minnesota.

The Cottonwood County Sheriff’s Office says officers were called Monday morning to a home in Windom, and heard shouting coming from inside the house.

Officers were trying to enter the house when they heard shots fired from inside. KTOE-AM (https://bit.ly/1RjKkDC ) reports two rounds hit a police car.

Police retreated, formed a perimeter around the house and called for help. A tactical team entered the house about four hours later and found a 48-year-old man dead and a 52-year-old woman injured.

The woman was taken to a hospital. Her condition has not been released.
