WENDELL, Idaho (AP) - South-central Idaho authorities say a woman was shot after she pointed a rifle at sheriff's deputies in Wendell.

Gooding County Sheriff Shaun Gough says deputies responded Tuesday afternoon to a domestic dispute and found a woman standing in the road holding a rifle.

Gough says the women pointed the rifle at deputies and ignored commands to put the rifle down. Gough says shots were fired.

The sheriff has released few details.

He says the woman was alive when transported to a medical facility. KMVT reported Wednesday that the woman had passed away from her injuries.

Her name hasn't been released.

The Twin Falls Police Department is leading the investigation as part of the Critical Incident Task Force.
