A Tulsa mother who held Tulsa Police at bay with a shotgun for nearly 9 hours, gave up quietly after authorities cut off her power and water.

Officials say police were first called to the home on North Birmingham Avenue around 3 AM. Police say Linda Green and her husband were fighting. The domestic dispute flared up again around 7 AM when officers say Green fired a shotgun at a man renting from the couple, then barricaded herself and her 3-year old daughter inside.

Green eventually surrendered and may face charges. No one was injured.
