Coventry police responded to Lake Street on Tuesday afternoon after reports that a woman pointed a rifle at a man.
Police said they responded to the home on Lake Street just before 3 p.m. A woman identified as 57-year-old Debra Bernier was barricaded inside a camper on the property.
A nearby school, G.H. Robertson School on Cross Street, was placed on a temporary lockdown as police set up a perimeter. The students were released from school safely.
A note was sent to parents in Coventry by Superintendent of Schools David Petrone, saying buses were running about 15 to 20 minutes late because of a "police emergency on Lake Street." Buses were advised to avoid the area to ensure students were safe.
At about 5:45 p.m., police cleared the scene and said Bernier was in custody. A weapon was recovered.
She was arrested and charged with assault on a police officer, second-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree threatening, second-degree breach of peace and interfering with police.
She was held on a $10,000 bond and is expected to appear in court on Wednesday.
No injuries were reported.
Lake Street was closed between Main Street and Bissell Road until around 5:30 p.m. A portion of High Street was also closed between Lake Street and Stonebridge Road. Those areas have since been reopened.
