Released by the Marshall Police Department:

On Friday April 5, 2013 at approximately 3:48pm, the Marshall Police Department dispatched officers to the area of the 700 Block of W. Burleson in reference to a subject who had barricaded herself up inside her residence and was allegedly armed.

As the stand off continued, it was learned that a female subject, identified as 32 year old Kelly Ann Tibbetts was armed with a rifle.

Several rounds were fired by Tibbetts at officers and after a short period of time, officers were able to deescalate the situation. Tibbetts surrendered and exited the house without incident.

Tibbetts was placed under arrest for Attempted Capital Murder of a Peace Officer and transported to the Harrison County Jail.

Attempted Capital Murder of a Peace Officer is a 1st Degree Felony and punishable by imprisonment in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for life or for any term of not more that 99 years or less that 5 years and a possible fine not to exceed $10,000.
