KALISPELL, Montana — The trial for a Columbia Falls woman who was shot by a sheriff's deputy after she allegedly pointed a gun at law enforcement officers has been postponed.

The Daily Inter Lake reports ( ) 55-year-old Michelle Gentry's trial was set to begin Monday, but Deputy Flathead County Attorney Alison Howard said prosecutors and defense attorneys were "trying to work out a resolution."

Howard says more details will be available in a week.

Gentry was shot twice when she approached the SWAT team with a gun in her hand Oct. 10, 2013. The SWAT team was called when negotiators were unable to get Gentry to leave her house. She was reportedly suicidal.

Gentry was initially hospitalized in critical condition but has since recovered.
