Brooklyn Williams, 22, was arrested Tuesday afternoon after she was brought in for questioning, the Pottawatomie County District Attorney Office confirmed.

On their way to the store they were pulled over by Terney. Eventually Shepard would attempt to flee on foot, and engage in a shootout that ended with both men shot, Terney fatally so. Shepard remains in the hospital.

Williams has been booked into the Pottawatomie County Jail. Her bond was set at $75,000.
