California Officer Shoots Woman Who Allegedly Rammed Undercover Car

April 16, 2015  | 

A San Leandro, Calif., police officer on Wednesday shot a woman who allegedly rammed a stolen vehicle into an undercover police car in East Oakland, police said, reports the San Jose Mercury News.

San Leandro police about 4:30 p.m. attempted to pull over the unidentified woman in the 300 block of 105th Avenue near Interstate 880 in the Sobrante Park area of East Oakland, authorities said.

Instead, she drove on a sidewalk on the dead-end street, hit several parked cars and rammed the undercover police vehicle, prompting at least one officer to open fire, Oakland police spokeswoman Officer Johnna Watson said. At least five other marked San Leandro patrol cars were there when the shooting occurred, Watson said.

The woman, described as being in her 20s, was wounded more than once but was conscious and talking as she was taken to a hospital after the shooting, police said. Her exact condition was not available. A male passenger in the stolen car was detained and being questioned by police Wednesday evening.

A beginning Bonnie and Clyde stopped before they made any more fame. Good job officers.

Good Shoot. She was using the car as a deadly weapon, and will live unless she was hurt worse than they thought. Still, Good Shoot.

From paper...what is happening there..I use to live there...

The incident is the third shooting involving San Leandro police — and a stolen car — in the last 4½ months, and the second to take place in East Oakland.
On Dec. 4, a 16-year-old Oakland girl in a stolen car ran over a San Leandro officer on the 600 block of Broadmoor Avenue, prompting the officer, who suffered leg injuries, to open fire.
On Dec. 7, officers shot Guadalupe Ochoa-Manzo, 27, of Union City after she allegedly rammed several police cars at the end of a chase that streaked from San Leandro to Springfield Street, a cul-de-sac near 98th and Bancroft avenues in East Oakland. Ochoa-Manzo died two days later at a hospital....SFGate
