FERRIDAY — Warrants have been issued after a woman allegedly tried and failed to discharge a firearm at a group of people Sunday.

At 11:28 p.m., police responded to a call at 501 Delaware Ave., in which three individuals allegedly pulled up in a vehicle, and one — who was identified only as “Sonia” — was handed a handgun and attempted to shoot at the three victims standing there, Police Chief Kenneth Hedrick said.

After Sonia was unable to operate the gun, one of the passengers in her car allegedly threw bricks at the house and broke out three windows, Hedrick said.

Police were later able to locate the vehicle Sonia drove, a gold-colored Chevrolet Impala with Alabama tags, which was registered to an Andrea Allen, Hedrick said.

The victims filed affidavits with the police.

No motive was given for the incident.
