Standoff at Wilmington Apartment Complex

WILMINGTON -- An attempt to serve a warrant turned into a standoff at a Wilmington apartment complex.

Authorities say a woman grabbed a knife and began threatening two police officers when they came to her home.

A SWAT team and negotiating team were called to the scene. They were unable to make contact with the woman, so they forced their way inside the apartment.

The woman was taken to the hospital. No word yet on her injuries or what charges she could face.
