A shooting in Patton Village led to a SWAT standoff Monday night, authorities say.

Investigators said a man was suspected of shooting a woman sometime Monday night at a home on Lakeview near Highway 59.

Police said the woman managed to walk three homes away for help. When medics arrived, they determined she'd been shot in the back, officials said. She was taken by ambulance to a fire station in Porter where she was then flown by helicopter to the hospital in critical condition.

Police said when officers arrived to question the man, he refused to come out, sparking the standoff.
