HOUSTON -

Authorities say a man who barricaded himself in his home after shooting his wife in the shoulder apparently killed himself during a standoff with Harris County sheriff's deputies.

The Houston Chronicle reports that Harris County sheriff's deputies were called to the home Thursday morning after the man got into a quarrel with his wife at their home. Authorities said he shot her in the shoulder while their children were in the house.

The woman was taken to an area hospital and their children were not injured.

The man barricaded himself inside the home while deputies spent several hours trying to coax him outside.

Authorities say when they later sent a robot into the house, the man was found dead in a bedroom.

The man's identity has not been released.
