(MSC News)--A self-inflicted gunshot wound sent a woman for hospitalized treatment after she barricaded herself inside a residence in southern Mayetta Tuesday.

Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse told MSC News the woman, at last check, was listed in non-life threatening condition.

She was flown to the hospital around 1:45 when the situation ended at 15712 Rock Island Drive, just south of the Mayetta city limits.

When Deputies arrived on the scene, which they located through the use of cell phone GPS coordinates, they reported the sound of gunshots. 

As a precautionary measure, U.S. Highway 75, between 150th Road and 158th Road, was shut down, but has since been reopened.

The incident began around 10:30 Tuesday morning after the Sheriff's Office was notified of a suicidal individual by the Douglas County Sheriff's Office. 

Assistance was provided at the scene by the Kansas Highway Patrol, Potawatomi Tribal Police, the Hoyt Police Department, and the Holton Police Department.
