Authorities said two officers approached a motel room and 34-year-old Samantha Redicker came out holding a gun. The bureau said she pointed the weapon at one of the officers at least twice.

The bureau said Redicker did not comply with multiple orders to drop the gun and the officers fired, injuring her. She was taken to a hospital. Her condition was not immediately known Saturday.

The officers were not injured in the incident.
