Two women were reportedly shot inside a Ridgewood home Tuesday night, and the suspected shooter turned the gun on himself after a brief standoff with police.
Published reports indicated the shooting occurred at about 8:15 p.m. on Gates Avenue off Fresh Pond Road.
The victims, of an unknown age, were rushed to Elmhurst Hospital Center for injuries not considered life-threatening. Sources said one woman was shot in the back, while the other was hit in an arm.
The suspected shooter locked himself inside the location; hostage negotiators were brought in to help diffuse the situation and convince the suspect to surrender, published reports indicated.
This is a developing story; additional details will be reported as they become available.
