On September 1, 2022, at about 9:30 pm, deputies were dispatched to 1737 Potomac Rd. SW, where a female had barricaded herself inside a residence. The female, identified as 40-year-old, Jebrene Garcia arrived at the home belonging to her sister's ex-boyfriend and forcibly made entry by removing an air conditioning unit from a front window. Once inside, she armed herself with a large kitchen knife and hid.
