KANSAS CITY, Mo. --A KCMO woman is in custody Wednesday morning after a standoff with police.

The incident started around 12:30 or 1 a.m. when the woman's 14-year-old daughter left her home and told security at IHOPKC that her mother had abused and injured her.

The girl was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The 14-year-old said her mother was at their home near 117th and Cleveland with her 15-year-old brother. The two siblings had been in contact---the brother told her that their mom was going crazy and was armed with a 9mm gun. Another adult was reportedly inside of the home.

Around 3 a.m., KCMO police chief Darryl Forte tweeted that police were calling an operation 100----because the mother has a gun and won't come out or respond.

Negotiators spent time trying to contact the mom on her cell phone and by knocking on the door but there was no answer. Just before 6 a.m. officers  made entry into the home. The woman was taken into custody and transported to a local hospital just before 7 a.m.

It's not clear if the 15-year-old ever felt threatened.
