A man and a woman were charged with multiple offenses following an officer-involved shooting on May 31.

At about 11 p.m., police were conducting a foot patrol at the Suburban Motel, 2401 W. Hundred Road. When police entered the motel, they saw a man and a woman.

When the man and woman saw officers, the woman quickly left the area. Officers followed the woman and saw her entering a vehicle. As police approached to make contact with her, she attempted to leave in the vehicle, nearly striking the officers, a press release states.

Officers discharged their firearms, striking the woman driver. The officers involved in the shooting immediately provided first aid to the woman and continued to render aid until rescue personnel arrived. The woman, identified as Emily C.
