LANSING - Two people are under arrest after a domestic dispute leads to gunfire, and then a standoff with police in Lansing. At about 6 o'clock Wednesday morning police were called to a home on Bensch Street. A man had said he was fired at by woman inside the home. His car had been struck in the windshield. The Lansing tactical team was called, and surrounded the home with several heavily armed offers, as well as an armored vehicle.

Police attempted several times to communicate with the woman inside. Police used a bull horn and even flash grenades to try to get a response. After more than three hours, the woman came out.

The police initial investigation indicates that the man involved had come to the home of his former girlfriend that morning. The woman and her current partner got into an argument with the man, and eventually one of the women fired a gun at the man, striking his car. The man left and called police.

A 29-year old woman was arrested, and is expected to be charged with felonious assault. The 32-year-old man was also arrested, and faces a home invasion charge.

A gun was recovered at the home. No one was hurt.
