A LaPorte woman has died after shooting herself during a stand off with police

last week.

62-year old Christine Bush died two days later.

It all started when LaPorte City police responded to a domestic dispute involving Bush and a

family member on Miller St.

Police say the woman with officers in pursuit drove to her home at 912 Wright Ave.

Police say she threatened to shoot anyone trying to come inside.

Officers tried making contact with the woman but were not able to and she shot herself

a couple of hours later.

Chief Tom Owens says no charges will be filed in connection with the dispute.
