TULSA, OK -- Police investigating a shooting incident end up in a standoff situation overnight in north Tulsa.

Police officers surrounded a home near Marshall and Utica around 2 a.m. Tuesday.

Police say a 46-year-old woman walked into a nearby convenience store with a gunshot wound to her thigh and foot.

The woman called police and told them 49-year-old Lester Williams had shot her at her home.

Police went to the home to try and talk with Williams, but he wouldn't come out.

A Tulsa Police SWAT team eventually used tear gas to get Williams to come out.

Williams was arrested and taken to the Tulsa County jail.
