Local law enforcement responded to a call late Monday afternoon, blocking off a section of Seventh Street adjacent to High Plains Mental Health Center, 208 E. Seventh.

According to the Hays Police Department, officers were responding to a suicidal subject report. A female subject reportedly stabbed herself multiple times, according to Lt. Brandon Wright.

Officers responded to the situation, which Wright termed "tense," and successfully restrained the woman. She was transported by ambulance to Hays Medical Center and taken into surgery, for what appeared to be "very serious" wounds, Wright said.
