Woman Detained After Clairemont SWAT Situation

A Clairemont woman whose actions prompted a SWAT response Wednesday will not face criminal charges, San Diego Police officials said. 

The woman surrendered to police at approximately 6:30 p.m. after an hours-long standoff in an apartment in the 3100 block of Clairemont Drive. 

SDPD received a call from the woman's son at 1:28 p.m. saying the woman was depressed and threatening to harm herself and others.

SWAT officers surrounded the complex after learning a shotgun and AR-15 rifle with more than 100-rounds of ammo were inside the apartment.

Some neighbors were temporarily evacuated.

Her husband's weapons were in their home, but according to officials she never threatened to use them. 

The woman surrendered peacefully, after police negotiators and counselors communicated with her through text and phone.

Police said they were getting the woman the help she needs.
