SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (AP) - Springfield police spent five hours negotiating with a woman who held her partner at gunpoint inside their apartment and later refused to leave.

KVAL-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1MsgWL0 ) that police responded to a domestic call at the Village Inn apartments at 6 a.m. Saturday.

When they arrived, they learned a woman was pointing a gun at her partner. They evacuated neighbors.

Emergency personnel negotiated with the woman and she eventually let the victim go. She escaped through a bedroom window.

The woman then turned the firearm on herself and police spent several hours negotiating and asking her to leave her home.

The woman cooperated just before noon and was taken into custody.
