CHICAGO (AP) 03/10 — Chicago police say a 19-year-old woman faces attempted murder and other charges in the shooting of an officer who was serving a warrant.
Police said in a news release Sunday that Emily Petronella also is charged with aggravated assault of a peace officer, armed violence while discharging a weapon, aggravated discharge of a weapon at a peace officer and dealing more than 5,000 grams of cannabis. She also faces a misdemeanor bail bond violation.
Petronella was due in bond court Sunday. It wasn’t clear whether she has an attorney who could comment on the allegations.
Police say Petronella fired a shot through a door Saturday night, striking a 34-year-old officer in the shoulder. The officer is expected to recover.
