CHICAGO (AP) — A woman shot by Chicago police on the city's West Side was charged Monday with four felonies for allegedly pointing a handgun at officers.
Keshawna Davidson, 20, faces three counts of aggravated assault of a peace officer and one count of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon, Chicago police said.
Davidson was sitting in an illegally parked vehicle about 3:30 p.m. Saturday, police said.
“The female occupant began exhibiting characteristics of an armed person. Shortly thereafter, officers observed the female armed with a handgun which prompted an armed confrontation between police and the suspect,” police said in a statement.
Davidson allegedly pointed her gun, police said. Officers opened fire and struck Davidson several times. She was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
Police said they recovered a weapon at the scene.
