Standoff at Butte hospital ends peacefully

Posted: Updated:

BUTTE - A standoff between law enforcement and an armed woman at St. James Healthcare in Butte ended peacefully inside the hospital on Thursday night.

Police were dealing with what they described as a suicidal adult female who was armed with a handgun and she had barricaded herself in a room inside the hospital.

Police had contained the area and had been in negotiations with her for about two hours. The hospital was on lockdown during that time, but the female surrendered to police peacefully, with no shots fired.

The woman was taken into custody following her surrender.
