A woman who barricaded herself inside a La Vergne home for hours surrendered to police on Saturday night.

It started at 5 p.m. at a house in the 600 block of Hollandale Road, where Amity Lovelace reportedly threatened her husband at gunpoint.

He was able to escape with minor injuries before police arrived.

After officers were on the scene, Lovelace barricaded herself inside the home for more than three hours. A SWAT team was called and they negotiated with her to come out.

She was eventually subdued by taser at the front entrance of the home around 8:15 p.m. Lovelace was then taken into custody and transported to a hospital by ambulance to be evaluated.

A warrant has been issued for her arrest for aggravated assault-domestic. 

The investigation into the situation is ongoing.
