More than a dozen Harford County sheriff's deputies were dispatched to  a home in the 100 block of  Aqueduct Court in the Forest Lakes neighborhood of Forest Hill Friday around 3:45 p.m.

Police limited access to the cul-de-sac, Aquaduct Court and patrol cars, marked and unmarked, lined that road as well as the cross street of Trudeau Drive.

Police received a call from someone who said a woman had been on the back deck shooting a gun into the ground, according to Monica Worrell, public information specialist for the Harford County Sheriff's Office. Police converged on the house, which had been the scene of violence last November.

When police arrived, they tried to make contact by phone, but were unsuccessful. That¹s when the bullhorn was used. Shortly after 5 p.m., police were able to make contact with a woman in the house who told them she had been in the shower and didn't hear the phone ringing.

Cooperating with deputies, the woman came out of her home at about 5:30 p.m. and was taken into custody the situation was under control, Worrell said.

It wasn¹t clear if charges would be filed in the case,  however, the same house was the scene of violence last November.

On Nov. 23, 2010, Maryland State Police at the Bel Air Barrack interviewed one of two women who were living in the home at the time. She was bruised and bloody and appeared to have been beaten. She told troopers her girlfriend had beaten her and threatened her with a gun, tied her up and prevented her from leaving the home, according to a police report on that
incident. In the incident reported to police on Nov. 23, 2010, a gun was fired three times into a wall and hallway, according to charging documents.

Charged in the incident was Katie Neidert, 40, who has since been indicted in the case on charges of first and second degree assault, false imprisonment, using a gun in a crime of violence, and reckless endangerment, court records say. A trial in that case is scheduled June 6 in Harford County Circuit Court.
