A 50-year-old woman who caused a lockdown of Aromas School and an 18-hour standoff with law enforcement is now behind bars, according to Monterey County Sheriff Scott Miller.
Jacqueline Burse-Woodard of Aromas is in the Monterey County Jail after surrendering to Salinas police around 7 a.m. Friday, Miller said at a press conference.
Smith said a domestic fight between Burse-Woodard and her husband, Gregory S. Woodward, escalated to the point of her spouse escaping the home and calling police around 12:30 p.m. Thursday.
Burse-Woodard barricaded herself inside her Bardue Street home with three rifles and one small-caliber handgun, officials said.
"She knew how to use them," Miller said, noting her husband said she was familiar with guns.
The sheriff did not know if the guns belonged to Burse-Woodard, or if the couple owned the home.
He said Aromas School, two blocks from Burse-Woodard's home, was on lockdown Thursday and closed Friday because of an "excess of caution."
Burse-Woodard is expected to be charged with assault with a deadly weapon and making terroristic threats.
