Three charged after youth points rifle at police

Several people have been charged following an incident where a youth pointed a firearm at police.

On June 19, at 1:30 a.m. Bonnyville RCMP were sent to a residence in Kehewin for a report of shots fired.

When the police pulled up, a male, later identified as a 16-year-old youth was seen in the driveway holding an SKS rifle that he then pointed toward the first approaching police car. RCMP Constables were able to re-position and get out of the line of fire and back up resources arrived from Cold Lake RCMP and Police Dog Services from St. Paul. The youth then fled the scene.

A 21-year-old female, later identified as Janayha Night, was arrested without incident when she came out of the home with her hands up, and a 21-year-old male, later identified as Nike Stone, was found hiding in the bushes surrounding the residence; he was also arrested.

Police also found several baggies of methamphetamine at the scene, where Stone was located, appearing to have been packaged for sale, and witnesses reported that two males, determined to be Stone and the 16-year-old youth, had been shooting firearms outside from within the residence.
