A Collinsville woman was charged in connection with an alleged barricade incident, according to a report from Henry County Sheriff Wane Davis.
The alleged incident occurred around 8:03 a.m. on December 29, when the Martinsville-Henry County 911 Center received a report of a woman armed with a firearm inside of a home located at 1116 Daniels Creek Road in Collinsville.
Henry County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene and made contact with the woman through a window. The woman allegedly told deputies that she was armed with a firearm and would not exit the residence. The responding deputies began trying to persuade her to surrender peacefully, Davis said.
Due to the nature of the incident, the Henry County Sheriff’s SWAT Team and negotiators responded to the scene. Negotiators established contact with the woman and communicated with her for a period of time, Davis said, and alleged the woman still refused to come out of the home.
When negotiations were unsuccessful, the SWAT Team deployed chemical munitions into the home and subsequently entered the house.
The woman, identified as April Manning, was taken into custody at 10:50 a.m., Davis said. She was transported to SOVAH Health Martinsville for treatment of what Davis referred to as minor injuries.
Manning, 52, of the Collinsville home, was charged with a felony count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and a misdemeanor count of obstructing justice, according to the sheriff.
