Woman fires at cops during standoff

A village woman is in Columbiana County Jail on a charge of felonious assault after firing a 12-gauge shotgun at officers and neighbors during a three-hour standoff Thursday.

Sheriff Ray Stone said the case is being referred to the county prosecutor’s office, which may decide to amend or add additional charges against Bonnie Marriner, 50, of 19128 Haiti Road.

Marriner’s neighbor Roger Buckley said he pulled in the driveway Thursday evening and saw her smashing windows with her hands. He contacted a Salineville police officer,but Buckley said Marriner “mentioned getting the guns out.”

Marriner shot toward Buckley and another neighbor.

A slug ripped through a wall across the street where Buckley’s mother-in-law, Wilma Smith, lives. “It missed her by inches,” he said.

Sheriff’s deputies and members of the county’s Special Response Team arrived, and Chief Deputy Allen Haueter tried to get Marriner to come out. She refused and opened fire, though no one was injured.

Officers entered the home around 11 p.m. but did not find Marriner. Stone said he was notified a short time later that she was arrested by Ohio State Highway Patrol officers who found her walking near state Routes 164 and 39.

Marriner was treated for injuries to her hands at a local hospital and later booked in the jail.

Thank goodness that no one hurt ! With Columbiana Cty 's. record surprising no one was. But if the house was surrounded how did she escape ? Glad it ended the way it did . Now maybe they (Sheriff's Office) can solve all three murders that have ocurred here and have not been solved.

Using a form of expression that is natural in Youngstown Bonnie Marriner was able to communicate her displeasure . What is lacking in this fine article are the facts leading up to her displeasure . What was she mad about ?

The story reads like the summer interns are on the Columbiana crime beat.
