HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Huntington police say three people face felony charges after a bottle rocket was shot off from an apartment complex toward police officers.

The Herald-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/2kleY1I ) reports 35-year-old Jennifer Denise Blevins and 29-year-old Lila Marie Norris of Huntington and 37-year-old Robert Benjamin Schwieger of Lake Orion, Michigan, were arrested after an hourlong standoff with police on Saturday.

Huntington Police Chief Joe Ciccarelli says officers responding to an apartment complex reported hearing multiple loud noises, and as officers surrounded the complex and called for people inside one of the apartments to come out, a bottle rocket was shot toward a police officer. The officer was not hit.

The three suspects were charged with attempting to commit a felony and lodged in the Western Regional Jail. Jail records didn’t indicate whether they had attorneys.
