A SWAT scene unfolded in northeast Houston overnight involving who police described as a deranged woman. A woman at the home on Kashmere near Caplin called police to report that her sister threatened her with a knife. Police arrived, but the sister barricaded herself in a room. After a three hour standoff, SWAT officers went into the room and subdued the woman with a Taser.

She's in the hospital. Relatives blame her behavior on medication she had been taking.
