A Kuna woman is behind bars following an eight-hour standoff with the Ada County Sheriff's Office, which deployed SWAT officers and an armored vehicle to the scene.

Police were summoned to a home on South Cholla Drive in the early morning hours Jan. 14 after neighbors said they heard several gunshots coming from inside the home. Law enforcement said they could spot a gun through the window of the home, but a female suspect refused to come out. That began a morning-long standoff where police used a robot, PA system and cellphone in attempts to talk with the suspect.  

Midway through the standoff, another gunshot was fired from inside the home. Police said the shot was fired in the direction of law enforcement. That's when police made the decision to enter the home after the armored vehicle punched a hole in the building, sending a robot inside to assess the scene. Flashbang grenades were tossed into the home, and police entered, found the suspect and took her into custody.

The woman was taken to a local hospital for evaluation before being taken to the Ada County Jail.

Robin Miller, 59, of Kuna was charged with a felony count of assault or battery on law enforcement. She has a court appearance scheduled for later today.
