Fed up grandma, 90, holds shotgun in standoff with police (VIDEO)

(CNN) -- A 90-year-old Texas woman armed with a shotgun held off police officers for approximately four hours before surrendering, according to CNN affiliate KPRC.

KRPC reports officers arrived at the great-grandmother's home on Thursday, because construction workers called and said she threatened them with the weapon.


Eleouise Adcock was reportedly outraged that workers were digging up dirt and piling it onto a barge behind her house. Recently, a company bought up the land surrounding the home where Adock has lived for more than 40 years. A neighbor allegedly told KRPC Adcock is the last holdout and is frustrated by the company's repeated attempts to buy her property.

Police asked the elderly woman to put her gun down, but she refused. Hours later, Adcock surrendered and was taken to the hospital for a psychological evaluation.

No charges are expected.
