OAKLAND -- A 52-year-old woman armed with a gun was arrested Monday morning after a more than 14-hour standoff with police at an Oakland hills home, authorities said.

Neither the woman, whose name was not released, nor any officers were injured.

The woman was arrested about 11:15 a.m. Monday inside a house on Chambers Lane, off Colton Boulevard in the Montclair area, by a police SWAT team that worked with police negotiators to persuade her to surrender.

Police were initially called to the house on Chambers Lane about 9 p.m. Sunday on a report of a break-in.

Two men were arrested at the scene but the woman remained inside the house, where she armed herself with a gun that had been in the house, police said.

Police said the resident of the house was not at home at the time of the break-in, but that the suspects knew the resident.

Patrol officers tried to get the woman to surrender initially. SWAT team members were called about 2 a.m. Monday after the woman refused to surrender, and police negotiators also tried to convince her to come out.

Streets in the area were blocked off during the police operation but no homes were evacuated.

The woman and two men, who all have Oakland addresses, were arrested on suspicion of residential burglary.
