COLUMBUS, Ind. - Columbus police brought a peaceful end to a standoff that had been going on for hours Wednesday.
Just after 6 p.m., police were called to a home in the 3400 block of Brent Cross Drive on the city’s northeast side, Columbus Police Department Sgt. D. Matthew Harris said.
Family members reported a woman who lives at the home was acting "irrationally" and she had been inside the home since 6 p.m. She reportedly had been stabbing her vehicle and threatening others with a knife before barricading herself inside.
When Columbus police officers arrived and made contact with her, they said she began making threats to hurt herself and the officers.
SWAT officers were called to the scene after family members told police there were guns in the house.
Police said the woman was by herself in the home, but evacuated residents of six nearby homes.
Negotiators spent several hours talking with her before she came out peacefully.
Sgt. Harris said she was taken to a local health facility for a mental health evaluation.
