PHOENIX – A woman is dead and a man is in custody after a shooting and barricade incident in Phoenix on Thursday night, authorities said.

The suspect was hospitalized with undisclosed injuries after a police dog helped detain him at a home near 38th Street and Shea Boulevard, the Phoenix Police Department said in a press release Friday.

The 44-year-old man’s name was not released.

Officers responding to a shooting call around 5:20 p.m. found Amy Malobicky, 54, motionless on the ground outside the residence, police. She died of her injuries at the scene.

A man who was inside the house refused to come out for several hours, police said.

“Ultimately a K-9 was sent into the home and the man was taken into custody,” Sgt. Vincent Cole said in the release. “He was later transported to a local hospital to be treated for injuries received while being taken into custody.”

The investigation into the homicide is ongoing, police said.
