BROOKSVILLE, Miss. (AP) - A Noxubee County woman, who held law enforcement officers at bay for nearly eight hours Monday, was shot after wounding a deputy.

Sheriff Terry Grassaree says Deputy Eddie Franklin was not seriously hurt and was treated and released from a local hospital.

Grassaree says 53-year-old Elizabeth Guyton of Brooksville was wounded and taken to a Jackson hospital. Her condition is not known.

Grassaree tells WCBI-TV in Columbus (https://bit.ly/1szcxFe ) deputies went to Guyton’s home after she allegedly shot at a neighbor Sunday. He says deputies left about 4 p.m. Monday, hoping she would turn herself in, but they returned when she allegedly threatened to shoot another neighbor.

Grassaree says when a deputy tried to shoot her with a stun gun she opened fire. The sheriff says unidentified deputy shot Guyton.
