GRAND HAVEN TOWNSHIP, Mich. — After almost 24 hours, a standoff in Grand Haven Township is over.

The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office says a 40-year-old woman accused of barricading herself inside a home with multiple guns after firing shots was found dead Wednesday afternoon.

Deputies say members of the Ottawa County Critical Response Team entered the home at 12:40 p.m. Wednesday and found the woman deceased. They say it appears she died from self-inflicted injuries.

The standoff started around 1:40 Tuesday afternoon in Grand Haven Township.

Ottawa County deputies responded to the home in the 13600 block of Hofma Court after receiving a call Tuesday afternoon.

Deputies say the woman's parents were able to escape the house after the shots were fired.

The sheriff’s office had asked neighbors to shelter in place but say there is no longer any threat to the public.

Detectives are still on scene and the case remains under investigation.
