Standoff in Leupp highlights domestic violence message

LEUPP-In the early afternoon of July 18, a Leupp resident allegedly shot his wife, then barricaded himself in his house for hours. As the scenario unfolded, John Tsosie, his father, Ernie Tsosie Jr. and their companions Gerald Milford and Leanne Guy were walking into the community. The four have been walking across the Navajo Nation with a message against domestic violence in a walk they call "Walking the Healing Path."
