JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - A Jefferson County woman is behind bars following a standoff.

Deputies say a female carjacking suspect was barricaded in a home for about two hours, Thursday night. The home is at the intersection of Warrior Jasper Road and Tate Mill Road.

Sheriff's deputies say it started around 7:30 P.M. when the suspect, identified as 36-year-old Stacy Teets, and her roommate crashed a vehicle. When a tow truck arrived, deputies say Teets took the truck at gunpoint. She then drove her roommate to the roommate's parents' home.

Deputies say Teets did fire the gun inside the home, but no one was hurt. She eventually surrendered.

No charges have been announced.
