The RCMP have arrested and charged a Novia Scotia woman with a number of serious offenses in connection with an incident in Dieppe, New Brunswick.

According to the report, on January 5 at about 2:30 p.m. Atlantic Time, first responders were called to the scene of a single-vehicle crash where a car had gone off the road on Adelard-Savoie Blvd in Dieppe.

When firefighters and paramedics first arrived on the scene, they were greeted with shots being fired at them with an Airsoft gun by the woman and she allegedly threatened to kill them.

Members of the Codiac Regional RCMP responded to the call and encountered threatening actions from 25-year old Morgan Maryanne Connors of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia upon arrival.

A member of the RCMP discharged their firearm during the incident and Conners was injured and taken to the hospital. Mounties reported that no one else was hurt in the crossfire.

Connors was brought before a judge today by way of tele-remand and was charged with numerous charges such as, but not limited to, pointing a firearm with an Airsoft gun, uttering threats, discharging an air gun with intent, and possession of cannabis for the purpose of distribution.

Connors has been remanded into custody and is scheduled to appear in Moncton Provincial Court on Friday, January 18 for a bail hearing.
