Original story: Just after 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 26, Fire Medic 20 responded to a medical call at the New Main Apartments on Alcorn Drive.

Initial reports indicate that paramedics were attempting to help an 18-year-old woman suffering a medical condition. It is unclear what happened next, but the situation devolved into at least one person reportedly attacking the ambulance with a baseball bat.
