BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- A Booneville man faces felony charges after authorities say he shot at a police officer during an armed standoff Saturday.
Police Chief Michael Ramey said Patrick Wayne Windham, 29, is charged with one count of aggravated assault on a police officer with a deadly weapon and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Ramey said at about 3:35 p.m. Saturday, officers responded to a disturbance call at the Waters Village Apartments, located at the corner of Jefferson Street and Walker Avenue.
Police made attempts to talk to Windham inside the apartment, but he fired a shot at one of the officers with a 9mm Ruger, narrowly missing him.
Ramey said the police left the apartment and contacted the Tupelo Police Department SWAT Team soon afterward.
Shortly after 7:45, the SWAT team and members of the Booneville Police Department took Windham into custody after breaching the apartment door.
Windham has a hold by the Mississippi Department of Corrections for a probation violation.
A justice court judge set Windham's bond at $250,000.
