By Amy Cherry

A standoff with police ends peacefully in Dover.

Police say a woman who had fled from the hospital barricaded herself inside her home on the 100 block of Evergreen Drive, saying she had a gun.

Dover Police say the woman came outside onto neighborhood streets several times showing the gun, asking police to shoot her.

Residents were advised to stay inside their homes until the standoff was over.

So far, the woman doesn't face criminal charges as she under goes a psychological evaluation.
