A woman was arrested in Gaston County after a standoff with police that lasted nearly four hours, according to the Cramerton Police Department.
The incident began when Police were called to 64 Fourth Street just before 11:30 a.m. Monday due to a domestic dispute involving a weapon.
Once on scene, officers were met by a resident who told them his mother, later identified as Deborah Pope, had fired two shots from a rifle inside the house, one of which was fired at him. He said he then fled the home with the rest of his family.
Officers attempted to make contact with Pope inside the home, but saw her retreat to a bathroom with the rifle in her hand.
Cramerton Police requested assistance from the Gaston County Police Emergency Response Team, and officers from both agencies set a perimeter around the home while attempts to negotiate continued.
Pope made several appearances at the front door of the home but refused to comply with officers' instructions to exit the house unarmed, police told WBTV.
Finally, around 3:30 p.m. the standoff ended when Emergency Response Team members used chemical munitions and distraction devices to take Pope into custody.
She was taken to the Gaston County Jail and charged with Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Unlawful Discharge of a Firearm, and Resisting and Obstructing Law Enforcement.
