AMMON -- Police in eastern Idaho say the parking lot for the Walmart in Ammon had to be closed for about half an hour because of a woman with a handgun threatening to harm herself.

KIFI-TV reports that the Idaho Falls SWAT team responded about 9:40 p.m. Friday and surrounded the car where the woman was sitting.

Lt. Kevin Casper says the woman was distraught but surrendered after 30 minutes and shoppers were never in any immediate danger.

He says the woman was taken into custody and will undergo a mental evaluation.
