An armed woman in her 70s fired two rounds Thursday at a sheriff’s department robot at a Calabasas-area mobile home park during a standoff with deputies, authorities said.

Deputies went to the 4200 block of Topanga Canyon Boulevard Boulevard in unincorporated Topanga just north of Calabasas about 5:35 a.m. in response to a “medical assistance” call and saw a woman about 70 years old with a gun, but she fled before they could contact her, according to the sheriff’s department.

No shots were fired then, but the unidentified woman later fired two rounds at a robot deployed by the sheriff’s department, a sheriff’s official said at the scene.

Law enforcement personnel set up a containment area in the mobile home park and were still trying to persuade the woman — believed to be holed up in the backyard of one of the homes — to surrender late this afternoon. A SWAT team and crisis negotiators were at the scene.
