Memphis man held for firing on law officers

A Memphis, Tenn., man was being held on

$120,000 bond Saturday for alleged shooting at lawmen who went to

the Southaven home to serve a search warrant.

No one was injured in Friday's incident.

Kimberly L. Washington, 36, was charged with six counts of

aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer with a weapon.

No details have been released about the incident or what

authorities were searching for.

Southaven police said in a new release Friday that agents with

the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, the U.S. Marshals

Service Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force and the DeSoto

County SWAT team went to the home to serve the warrant.

"The occupant fired shots at them. The officers returned fire.

No one was injured and the occupant was taken into custody without

further incident," according to the news release.

Southaven Police Lt. Mark Little said his department was called

in to work the crime scene and shooting, but he referred all

questions to federal officials.

The U.S. Marshals Service office referred all questions to the

U.S. Attorney's office in Memphis, which was closed Friday for the

holiday weekend.
