ORIGINAL REPORT:

WETUMPKA, Ala. (AP) — The Elmore County Sheriff’s Office says an Enterprise woman was shot and wounded by a deputy she attempted to run over with a stolen truck.

The Montgomery Advertiser reports the woman was shot in the arm Sunday morning and was later hospitalized.

Sheriff Bill Franklin says a woman called 911 stating her vehicle was struck off the road; when deputies arrived, they found an empty vehicle that was reported stolen from Enterprise.

Franklin says a deputy saw another car down the road and attempted to approach it twice, before almost being run over. Franklin says the deputy shot the woman while moving out of the car’s way.

Franklin says she was in a stolen car, taken from a nearby man’s barn. He says when she’s released from the hospital, she’ll be charged with attempted murder and theft of property.

Franklin didn’t release her name.
