WASHINGTON COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A standoff with Washington County police Tuesday evening ended peacefully.

Police say at around 6:30 p.m. they responded to a domestic situation in Hardinsburg, Indiana, possibly involving weapons.

When they arrived, police made contact with a man who said he and his ex-wife had been in an argument earlier that day.

The man said that he left to run some errands and when he returned, she threatened him with a gun and fired off a shot.

The man said he then left the residence and called 911.

State Police Negotiators and SWAT arrived and surrounded the home with the woman inside.

At around 9:18 p.m. she surrendered and was taken into custody.

The woman, later identified as 49-year-old Katrina E. Heath, was taken to the Washington County Jail on preliminary charges of criminal recklessness with a firearm, intimidation, pointing a firearm, resisting law enforcement and attempted murder.
