I have a Samsung Galaxy 6S. Screen is freezing. Can I shut down Samsung Galaxy 6, without power button?

Screen is somehow freezing. Screen is not doing anything, it is not receiving any finger commands, can't shut down because it won't take any commands in shutdown menu. How can I directly shut it down without power button, what can I do?
