Troopers set up a perimeter around the house and members of the Delaware State Police Conflict Management Team and Special Operations Response Team attempted to communicate with the suspect for three and a half hours, but she refused to exit the home.

At approximately 6:45PM the woman willingly exited the residence and was taken into custody without further incident. The suspect was transported to Kent General Hospital for an evaluation.In investigation is still ongoing.
