BASSETT, Va. — A woman was arrested after shooting at deputies in what they called an “ambush-style attack,” according to the sheriff's office.

The Henry County Sheriff’s Office said the woman fired at four deputies Wednesday night as they approached a house from a wooded area on Pine Valley Drive in Bassett, VA. They said she fired multiple rounds and ran back into the woods. They said as the deputies took cover the woman fired shots sporadically at them for about 20 minutes. The tactical team found the woman in the woods.

Heather L. Hart, 26, was charged with four counts of attempted murder of a law enforcement officer and use of a firearm during the commission of a felony. She was placed in the Henry County Adult Detention Center without bond.
