Council Bluffs woman shot during domestic dispute dies

COUNCIL BLUFFS (AP) -

Council Bluffs police say a woman shot during a domestic disturbance has died.

Police Sgt. Chad Meyers said Tuesday that 44-year-old Millisa Cox was pronounced dead at a Council Bluffs hospital.

A neighbor, Jennie Rolli, says Millisa Cox came outside around 8 a.m. Tuesday, sat by a tree and yelled for help. She was soon taken to the hospital.

Officers say a man inside the home refused to come out, and a negotiator and a SWAT unit were called in. The officers rushed into the house about 9:45 a.m. to end the standoff. They found the woman's husband, 55-year-old Darwin Cox.

Meyers says Darwin Cox had shot himself in the head but the wound appeared to be superficial. He was taken to a hospital in nearby Omaha, Neb.
