    A man is dead and a woman is in the hospital after a shooting and standoff in Rocky Hill.

    Police responded to a call in the Westage Condominiums on 73 Carillon Drive around 8:30 p.m. on Thursday and found a female victim suffering from a gunshot shot wound to the stomach and the chest. 

    A man barricaded himself in the home and held police at bay for nearly three hours.

    Police later found his body in the condo. Detectives aren't saying how he died.

    A neighbor said there were between 25 and 30 police cars in the neighborhood from several towns, including Manchester, Enfield, Glastonbury and Wethersfield.

    Some neighbors were evacuated while others were advised to stay in their homes until the situation was under control.

    Police confirmed that the Capitol Region Emergency Service Team as well as SWAT responded.

    Police do not know whether this was a random act or a case of domestic violence but said there is no threat to the community.
