MARQUETTE, MI--   A Marquette woman has been arrested after she pointed a firearm at law enforcement officers. 

Friday around 3:30 p.m. City Police went to an apartment at 200 Northland Drive to conduct a wellbeing check on Lorin Rochon, 31. Before they even got to the door Rochon allegedly opened it and pointed a gun at them.

Marquette Police requested assistance from Michigan State Police and the Marquette County Sheriff’s Office and a perimeter was set up around the apartment complex. Rochon eventually turned the firearm over to a third party.

Monday Marquette Police arrested Rochon for assault with a dangerous weapon. She’s lodged at the Marquette County Jail on a $150,000 cash/surety bond.
