The woman was rushed from the scene on Morse Street and flown to a hospital in Boston with a single gunshot wound, Norwood Police Chief William Brooks said at a news conference.

A woman brandishing a gun, at times to her head, was shot and wounded by police after a long negotiation in the parking lot of a business in Norwood, Massachusetts, on Friday, police said.

The woman was rushed from the scene on Morse Street and flown to a hospital in Boston with a single gunshot wound to her mid-section, Norwood Police Chief William Brooks said at a news conference.

According to police, the woman had barged into the storage facility, armed with a gun, which she allegedly pointed at a man she was having a dispute with. The man, who is an employee at the business, was able to dash out of the store and sprint across the street, alerting a co-worker to do the same. The employee called 911 shortly before 1 p.m., and officers quickly responded.

"We saw the woman in the parking lot, holding the firearm, initially holding it to her head," Brooks said.
