Authorities in grand forks say a woman was transported to altru hospital for evaluation after an early morning standoff with police.  After responding to a medical assist for a person suffering a heart attack around eight-30 last night officers were informed of a suicidal female armed with a firearm.  Police say there was apparently a confrontation over the weapon that led to the medical assist -- and the gun was discharged.   The investigation led police to a residence on the 300 block of first avenue south.  The subject refused to leave and nearby residents were evacuated as a precaution.   The grand forks p-d swat and crisis negotiation teams were deployed and were able to talk the woman out without incident.  the situation ended around five a-m.  The investigation continues with possible criminal charges.
