Codiac Regional RCMP say they have arrested a woman after a firearm was discharged at first responders in Dieppe.

Officers, along with firefighters and paramedics, responded to a single vehicle crash where a car went off the road on Adélard-Savoie Boulevard around 2:25 p.m. yesterday.

RCMP say when first responders arrived, they were fired upon by a woman at the crash scene.

Police say the scene was closed to traffic to ensure the safety of first responders and the public, and after about forty-five minutes the woman was arrested and taken to hospital for treatment of injuries she sustained while being arrested.

RCMP say none of the first responders were injured and the investigation is ongoing.
