Woman who fired shots at California senior housing arrested

CASTAIC, Calif. — Los Angeles sheriff’s authorities say a woman who fired shots through her door at a senior apartment complex surrendered peacefully after several hours.

They said Saturday that the suspect was arrested and booked at Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

Authorities evacuated the multi-story Castaic Lake Senior Village in Castaic, about 25 miles northwest of Los Angeles, Friday afternoon. Sheriff’s Lt. Leo Bauer says deputies went to the complex to check on the welfare of a woman who was reported as being “highly disturbed.”

The suspect refused to surrender and barricaded herself inside the location. Crisis negotiations team members persuaded her to come out after several hours.

The department did not release her identity.

There were no reported injuries and evacuees were allowed back into their rooms.
