A police standoff that lasted for hours overnight ended early this morning. 

It all started late last night on Cahalan near Central in southwest Detroit

Officers say a woman shot her brother in the leg--and then refused to come out of the house.

The neighborhood was put on lockdown as police brought in an armored vehicle. After a few hours, the woman was finally coaxed out of the home uninjured.

In the meantime, we've learned that the man who was shot is expected to be OK.
