Police were called to a Napier house about 9pm last night, where they discovered a woman dead.
A man had fled the house with a gun, leading police on a chase along Napier's Esplanade and southwest towards Hastings.
The armed offenders squad set up roadblocks in Hastings and Clive.
The man was shot by police on State Highway 2, in the centre of the town, before being arrested by the armed offenders squad about 11.10pm.
He was treated for his wounds at Hawke's Bay Hospital.
The Napier house is cordoned off as police investigate the circumstances of her death.
State Highway 2 through Clive is expected to remain closed today (Tuesday) for police to carry out a scene examination.
Diversions are in place and police are asking motorists to drive carefully through the town.
