Woman Fires At Federal Agents In Memphis As Warrant Is Served

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Federal agents exchanged gunfire with a person as they tried to serve a search warrant at a house Friday.

No one was hurt. Authorities say Kimberly Washington, who was inside the house, was charged with six counts of aggravated assault on a police officer.

Investigators refused to discuss the reason for the warrant, saying only that they intended to complete their original mission.

Lt. Mark Little of the Southaven Police Department said Drug Enforcement Administration agents and U.S. marshals were trying to serve the warrant at a house in Southaven.

WMC-TV reported that later Friday morning tow trucks removed at least two cars from the home.
