GREAT FALLS - A 32-year-old woman was arrested on Monday morning after a several hour standoff with police.
Authorities say that just before 5 a.m., a call came in that a woman was pointing a handgun at a person inside of residence in the vicinity of 11th Street South and 3rd Avenue.
Once police arrived on scene, the woman allegedly shot in the general direction of officers and ran into a garage. Three more shots were fired inside the garage.
The High Risk Unit deployed pepper spray, luring the woman outside, where she was then arrested at around 7 a.m.
The woman is facing at least one criminal endangerment charge and assault with a weapon. Authorities have not yet released her name.
