Standoff with armed woman in trailer outside Lodi school ends peacefully

A armed woman barricaded in a trailer was taken into custody Monday morning near a Lodi school after a three-hour standoff with police.

Lt. Sierra Brucia said Lodi police officers were called to Clyde W. Needham Elementary School about 6:30 a.m. Monday. Officers said the woman made threats, possibly only to her own well-being, and was armed with a gun.

The woman was inside a small travel trailer hooked to her car and would not come out, Brucia said. SWAT officers and police negotiators were called to the scene.

School was canceled for the day. The trailer was parked on South Pleasant Avenue in front of the school.

After about three hours, the woman came out of the trailer and into custody.
