    A man who had barricaded himself inside a southwest Miami-Dade home after gunshots were fired Monday morning shot and killed himself, police said.

    Miami-Dade Police officers responded to the home near Southwest 133rd Avenue and 209th Street around 6 a.m. after receiving a 911 call of a domestic incident.

    As officers arrived, gunshots were heard, officials said. Two women and a child were able to run out of the home and tell officers about the situation inside.

    "Upon the first unit's arrival they heard what appeared to be gunshots coming from the inside the residence. At the the same time two females and one juvenile exited the residence," Miami-Dade Police Det. Lee Cowart said. "Upon their exit, the arriving officers were able to interview them. They were able to determine there was one female juvenile still inside the residence and one adult male."
