OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma City woman accused of shooting at an ambulance she had previously called to her house has been taken into custody.

Police say 25-year-old Wanda Smelley was taken into custody about 4:30 p.m. Saturday after a nearly four-hour standoff. No injuries were reported.

She was taken to the Oklahoma County jail on complaints of shooting with intent to kill.

Police say Smelley initially called 911 complaining of chest pains, but emergency medical technicians arriving at her home were surprised by gunfire.

Officers responded Smelley's home shortly before 1 p.m. and blocked off the roads near her house before calling in bomb squad and tactical team members.
