The Alabama woman has yet to be identified.

At some point in the ride, the woman pulled out a gun and fired three shots inside the fire and rescue truck.

“After she fired three shots there was a tussle,” Birmingham Fire Chief Charles Gordon said. “None of our personnel was injured severely.”

The emergency responders managed to get out of the ambulance while the woman went for a what was described as a joy ride…

Police surrounded the ambulance at 4th Avenue West and 3rd Street west. The armed woman was arrested and taken into police custody. No officers were injured.
