A woman armed with a weapon is reportedly barricading herself inside a home in South Sacramento, near an elementary school.

The woman is reportedly “despondent” according to police, who also say there were sounds of gunfire heard from inside the home.

She was briefly seen outside with a gun and had reportedly been on her roof earlier.

Police say the woman is in the home alone. SWAT officers are on scene.

The home is off Center Parkway and north of Mack Road, near Charles E. Mack Elementary. Officers told the school they were far enough away from the home that they did not need to be in lockdown with any kids hanging around after school. There are extra officers on campus as a precaution.
