Hubbard County Attorney Greg Larson said Tuesday he is reviewing whether a woman will face charges after an armed standoff with police over the weekend.

County officials refused to identify the rural Park Rapids woman who surrendered to police early Monday after a nearly 20-hour standoff.

Larson said a decision regarding criminal charges will be made after mental health issues have been investigated. According to the Hubbard County Sheriff's Department, the incident began about 10 a.m. Sunday when the woman's husband reported that his wife had fired a gun in their home, causing him and two grandchildren to flee the residence.
