Woman arrested after Gaston County standoff

CRAMERTON, N.C. -

(AP) - A woman has been arrested after a standoff in Gaston County.

Police in Cramerton were called to a home shortly before 11:30 a.m. Monday because of a domestic dispute.

A man told officers that his mother had fired two rifle shots in the house. He said he fled with the rest of his family.

Officers say the woman went into a bathroom in the home with a rifle.

Gaston County police responded to the home and after about a four-hour standoff, officers used chemicals and distraction devices to take Deborah Pope into custody.

Pope is charged with assault with a deadly weapon, illegal firing of a gun and resisting and obstructing police.

It was not clear if she has a lawyer.
