Her injuries were non-life-threatening but she was taken to the hospital where she was treated for her injuries and released, police said, adding that detectives and a Victim’s Advocate “continued to assist her after her discharge from the hospital.”

When police got to their home in Goodyear, Arizona, Gray refused to come outside and barricaded himself inside the house overnight.

Police called Goodyear SWAT and Crisis Negotiations to the scene to assist before he eventually surrendered himself to authorities.
