KAYSVILLE — A woman who barricaded herself in her home for over seven hours surrendered to police early this morning.
KUTV News reports the woman surrendered to police at about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday.
The woman, who is described as in her 30s, barricaded herself inside her home near 200 North and Bonneville Lane in Kaysville around 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Kaysville Police Capt. Brent Ward said the woman apparently was distraught over a disciplinary action at work. KUTV reported the woman was employed as a civilian at Hill Air Force Base.
She had barricaded herself in a closet and was believed to be armed with a .40-caliber handgun. Her husband had called police, telling them he was concerned for her welfare.
Kaysville police arrived, evaluated the situation and evacuated the home and a couple of homes nearby.
Shortly after 10 p.m., negotiators from the Davis County Sheriff’s Office were in contact with the woman. Davis County SWAT team members had surrounded the home and were standing by, but Ward said the woman was not believed to be a danger to anyone except herself.

It is unknown if the woman will face any criminal charges.
