A trooper had to perform two PIT maneuvers to stop her vehicle, the GBI said. When two Crisp County deputies approached the vehicle, at least one shot was fired from inside, prompting deputies to fire back.
She was injured and taken to a hospital in Cordele, where she was listed in serious but stable condition Tuesday. No officers were injured.
“We'd like to thank all the other agencies involved, and thankfully no one else other than the suspect was injured,” Lucas said.
The GBI is investigating this incident, which is among four officer-involved shootings since Sunday.
