FARMINGTON — The Farmington Police Department has identified the 41-year-old woman behind a six-hour standoff on Monday near Esperanza Elementary School.
Jill Wild was charged Tuesday in Farmington Magistrate Court with resisting or obstructing an officer, criminal damage to property and negligent use of a deadly weapon. All of the charges are misdemeanors.
Police were dispatched at about 8 a.m. Monday to the 3800 block of Bellflower Circle after receiving reports of an armed subject, according to a press release from the Farmington Police Department.
Wild's husband told police he had argued with his wife that morning before leaving for work. When he returned to the house to grab some items, Wild was allegedly armed with a gun. He exited the house, heard a shot fired and called police, the release states.
Farmington's SWAT team responded to the incident, and Wild eventually exited the residence peacefully at 2 p.m.
Wild was transported to San Juan Regional Medical Center after the incident, Farmington police spokeswoman Georgette Allen said on Tuesday. Wild was then booked on a warrant at the San Juan County Adult Detention Center.
