WHITE HOUSE, Tenn. — A gun-waving woman was shot and wounded by police outside a motel in White House, Tenn., on Friday night.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is looking into the incident, according to a TBI news release.

The release said White House police were called to the local Motel 6 around 10 p.m. on a report of a domestic argument. Officers arrived to find Samantha Redicker, 34, armed with a handgun. The officers waited for backup and approached the room, and Redicker came out with a handgun and pointed it at them at least twice, the release stated.

Redicker refused commands to drop the weapon and the TBI said the situation "further escalated and resulted in both officers firing their weapons."

Redicker was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Neither officer was hurt. Their names were not released.

The agency said it will present the results of its investigation to 19th District Attorney General John Carney for a decision whether to bring charges against the officers.
