Officials said the woman inside was armed with a shot gun. Our media partner, the Mercury News reported the woman walked outside her home and made unspecified threats to people, including officers. One of the officers fired at least one shot at the woman, leaving her injured.

Neighbors are familiar with her and say she sometimes rents a room. "I don't know her personally. I just know she has a dog that she walks pretty diligently and she's pretty quiet, kind of keeps to herself," neighbor Gabi Reyes said.
