CHARLESTON POLICE FIRED UPON - Charleston Police say they received gunfire Wednesday night on the city's notorious West Side, but nobody had been hurt, said Lt. Jim Sands.

Officers were shot at six or seven times near a house on Red Oak Street shortly before midnight.

Police were investigating a pizza delivery driver's claim that a person standing with a group at Stockton and Frame streets pointed a gun at him.

Police tracked suspects to a house on the 1600 block of Frame Street and later went to another house, said officer Sands.

The incident was continuing early this morning.

ON THE CAPITOL SIDE OF TOWN - A Charleston woman was arrested yesterday after she allegedly fired a revolver at two people after an argument erupted near her East End apartment. No one was hit.

Alexis Roxanne Cruz, 19, got out a gun after she got into a fight with two siblings who lived nearby.

Cruz said "If I wanted to shoot that bitch I would have!"

Police found a Stevens Model 124C 12-gauge shotgun under a bed and a loaded .38-caliber Smith & Wesson revolver with a spent round on a pile of laundry.

One of the participants was convicted in 2003 of three counts of distribution of crack cocaine and is charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
