AUSTIN (KJCE) -- Police say a man was found dead inside a Northwest Austin apartment, hours after a woman escaped the same apartment with gunshot wounds.

Officers responded to the Estates on Quarry Lake Apartments in the 4600 block of Seton Center Parkway, near U.S. 183 and Braker Lane, just after 12:15 a.m. Friday morning. 911 callers had reported a disturbance between a husband and wife, and hearing gunshots.

The woman was able to make it out of the apartment, and was taken to a nearby hospital with injuries consistent with gunshots.

SWAT officers tried to make contact with the man, and used an APD helicopter to search the nearby area to ensure he hadn't escaped the apartment. Nearby residents were asked to lock themselves inside.

Around 3:30 a.m., officers breached the apartment and found the man dead, ending the standoff.
