Henry Co., Ga. (WXIA / NBC News Channel) -- A hostage situation at a Georgia neighborhood that lasted more than 15 hours has come to a tragic end, police said.

The standoff has ended with the deaths of several people, Henry County Police said. Authorities entered the home early Friday morning and found three people dead of gunshot wounds. The dead include a teenager, a pregnant woman and the gunman.

The standoff was sparked by a frantic 911 call at a home in the Eagles Ridge subdivision in Henry County, Georgia after police say a woman reported seeing blood.

Police say a gunman unleashed several rounds on responding officers, injuring two.

They are expected to be OK, but the situation devolved as the unidentified suspect allegedly held a teen hostage inside the Henry County home.
