Memphis police responded to a call of a caretaker abusing an 85-year-old woman Thursday night, which led to a standoff. The standoff ended shortly after the initial call peacefully.
The woman's son asked police to conduct a wellness check on his mother in the 8500 block of Fox Heather Cove. The man told police he believed his mother was being abused by her 20-year-old caretaker.
Initial reports said the caretaker was armed with a rifle, but police said the woman did not have a gun.
