ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. (AP) - Police say two people are dead in suburban Detroit after a 28-hour standoff that began when a man was upset about fireworks in his neighborhood.
  
The police chief in St. Clair Shores tells TV station WXYZ that a 58-year-old man fatally shot a 60-year-old woman and himself. The bodies were discovered about 2:30 a.m. EDT Saturday when officers got inside.
  
Police on Friday pumped water into the house and used a robotic battering ram to knock down the front door and try to end the standoff. The incident began Thursday night when a man tried to disrupt the use of fireworks on his street and shot and injured two people.
  
Deputy Chief Gary Crandall says the man refused to surrender and occasionally took shots at police and the robots.
