While outside of the residence Deputies repeatedly encountered who was seen holding a handgun to her head and was waving the handgun in the general direction of the deputies.

The deputies continually tried calm to Kloss who eventually appeared in the doorway of the residence with an assault rifle, and began to move toward the officers and point the rifle in their direction.
