TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - An Avra Valley woman accused of shooting a man and barricading herself in a home last week has died.

The Pima County Sheriff’s Department said Sandra Judson, 71, was found unresponsive in a medical housing unit at the Pima County Adult Detention Complex early Saturday, Oct. 9.

According to the PCSD, there were no signs of trauma or suspicious circumstances. Judson was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Judson was arrested last week on a charge of attempted second-degree murder after an hours-long standoff.

The PCSD said the man called 911 around 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 5, and said he had been shot.

Deputies found the victim outside a home in the 17000 block of West Bacabi Road, which is near Silverbell and North Cocio.

The PCSD said an armed Judson then barricaded herself in the home and refused to come out.

Several hours later, authorities entered the home and took Judson into custody without incident. She was transported to a local hospital for an unrelated medical issue. A source told KOLD that Judson went into diabetic shock.
