Deputies have arrested a Georgia after a seven-hour standoff at her Jackson County home.

Officials say the situation that eventually involved a SWAT team started just before midnight on Friday, Oct. 9.

According to the Jackson County Sheriff's Office, deputies were called to Pinetree Circle in Maysville after construction workers reported they had been shot at while working nearby.

When a deputy got to the scene, officials say he found 58-year-old Diana Dellana standing in her driveway with a firearm. Dellana is accused of pointing the gun at the deputy and then barricading herself inside her home.
