NORTH SALT LAKE – Police say a North Salt Lake Woman fired a gun during a standoff on July 22.

According to NSL Assistant Police Chief Troy Johnson, officers were dispatched to perform a welfare check on 38-year-old Amanda Carson, who resides at the Pebble Creek Apartments on 850 N. Highway 89.

Johnson said when officers arrived, Carson brandished a firearm, and they backed off.

He said Carson then barricaded herself inside the apartment, and negotiators tried to coax her out.

During the standoff, Johnson said Carson fired the weapon inside the apartment, hitting the door.

Johnson said Carson eventually gave herself up, but that she had also overdosed on medication. She was taken to Lakeview Hospital for psychiatric treatment.

She was released from the hospital on Monday and immediately booked into the Davis County Jail.

Carson faces three charges, including assault against a police officer, illegal discharge of a firearm and interference with an arresting officer.
