After seven hours barricaded in her home, Hall County SWAT officers arrested a Maysville woman who allegedly fired a gun at construction workers and pointed a gun at a Jackson County deputy, according to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office. 

Diana Dellana, 57, of Maysville, was charged with aggravated assault on a peace officer.  

Jackson County 911 took a report around 11:59 a.m. Friday, Oct. 9, from construction workers who were “fired upon while working” in the area of Pinetree Circle in Maysville, Jackson County Sheriff Janis Mangum said.  

A Jackson County deputy arrived on the scene and saw a woman in a driveway with a gun, Mangum said. 

Mangum said Dellana pointed the gun toward the deputy and then retreated back into her home. 

After multiple attempts to get her out of the home, the Hall County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team arrived and tried to talk with her, authorities said. 

The SWAT team entered the home at 7:09 p.m. Friday, and Dellana was arrested 30 minutes later, Mangum said. 

Additional warrants are pending regarding the incident with the construction workers, according to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office.
