The woman believed to have been involved in the Bastrop shootout that left two police officers dead is now behind bars.

26-year-old Tanya Smith was captured Sunday morning in Houston, Texas and is now facing two charges of first degree murder.

Authorities say Smith and her boyfriend, Dennis Clem, were involved in the Bastrop shootout that killed two police officers and injured two paramedics.

The shooting happened during a standoff Friday afternoon and officials still are not sure what sparked the gunfire.

The officers responded to a hotel looking for Smith and Clem who were wanted for a murder outside of Houston.
