The streets reopened and residents were allowed to leave their homes in northwest suburban Northbrook after an armed standoff ended Wednesday.

Police say they found 65-year-old Richard Phelps dead in his home in the 2400-block of Partridge Lane around 7 p.m. Wednesday night.

They were called to the home earlier by a woman who reported a domestic dispute. She told officers she heard a gunshot as she left the house.

Police tried to talk with the man, but they were unable to make contact.
