A Johns Creek police officer shot at a woman’s car Saturday morning after she reportedly struck two people in the parking lot of a bar and then drove toward police, authorities said.

Officers were called to the Bliss Bar and Lounge along Medlock Bridge Road about 1:45 a.m. after witnesses said 30-year-old Yasmine Bianca Mbi hit two women in the parking lot, the GBI said in a statement.

According to investigators, Mbi drove toward police when they arrived, prompting a Johns Creek officer to open fire.

Mbi was not injured in the shooting and managed to flee the scene in her car, GBI spokeswoman Natalie Ammons said Saturday. One of the women she reportedly hit was seriously injured and the other suffered minor injuries.

Mbi was arrested about 7:30 a.m. after officers located the vehicle at her Johns Creek home, investigators said. She is charged with two counts of aggravated assault and one count of hit-and-run.

The GBI is investigating the officer-involved shooting. It is the 58th police shooting the agency has been asked to investigate this year.

A Norcross man was shot by police Friday evening after authorities said he pointed a gun a Gwinnett County police officer during a domestic dispute at an apartment complex.

The suspect, 47-year-old Ramon Guillen, remains at Grady Memorial Hospital in critical condition, according to the GBI.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution also tracks officer-involved shootings that don’t involve the GBI, and those numbers sometimes differ from the GBI’s tally.

Mbi remains held at the Fulton County Jail without bond, online records show. Her first appearance hearing is scheduled for Monday at noon.
