BEL AIR, Md. (AP) — The Harford County Sheriff's Office says a man is dead and his estranged wife is injured after a standoff overnight.

Sheriff's office spokesman Ed Hopkins says a Bel Air woman called authorities Monday to report Jamie Nicole Campbell, her 28-year-old daughter missing, noting that she might be with her estranged husband.

Hopkins says investigators tracked the daughter's SUV to a dirt road near Bel Air, where the daughter warned arriving deputies that her husband had a gun. Authorities negotiated through the night with 37-year-old Luis Arturo Hernandez, but Tuesday morning Hopkins says relatives got a call from him to say goodbye.

Hopkins says a team moved in and shots were fired. He says Hernandez is dead and Campbell was flown to Shock Trauma with a gunshot wound to the abdomen.
