PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) - A southeast Kansas standoff has ended with an officer using a stun gun on a suspect.

The Pittsburg Morning Sun (https://bit.ly/1Xxd38r ) reports that the 53-year-old female suspect is accused of threatening a relative with a gun before calling police around noon Wednesday. Pittsburg Police Department Major Brent Narges says she told police responding to the disturbance that she was armed.

Narges said the woman was alone in the home when officers arrived and surrounded the area. She was persuaded to exit the home around 3 p.m. The woman put her hands up to show she was unarmed and then sat on the front porch. Within a couple minutes, an officer shot the woman with the stun gun.

She was taken to a hospital for a pre-existing medical condition.
