A woman is under arrest after allegedly pointing a gun at City of Wildwood Police officers who were responding to a call at a local residence.

Wildwood Police say that just before 5:00 Friday morning, police officers responded to a call about an intoxicated female at a local address.

When officers arrived on the scene in the 4200 block of Pacific Avenue, they started climbing a staircase leading to a second floor unit. At that time, Kelly Longbottom, 56, opened the door, yelled at police officers, and pointed a firearm in their direction. Police say Longbottom then quickly went back into the residence, and closed the door behind her.

Police describe what happened next:

Officers established a perimeter around the apartment and were eventually able to instruct a second occupant of the residence to retrieve the weapon and throw it out of the unit, at which time the firearm was determined to be a BB gun. Officers then made entry into the residence, where Longbottom was located and taken into custody. During a search incident to arrest, a suspected schedule II narcotic was located on her person and secured as evidence.
