As police gathered details about the incident, they determined a 36-year-old woman had been involved in a domestic disturbance at a residence.  She then left the scene in a vehicle. Information obtained also led police to believe she may be suffering from a medical issue.

A number of investigative techniques were utilized in attempts to locate her including the use of an EPS crisis negotiator, who was able to make contact with her via cell phone.

Officers were able to locate her and were successful in taking her safely into custody. She was transported to hospital for examination and treatment and remains in custody at this time.

In addition to the heightened police presence in the area, with officers and police vehicles, two ambulances were at the scene.
