At some point, she was able to slip out of the handcuffs and gain access to a firearm. That is when she shot the deputy and civilian.

Trooper Eric Foster said the civilian was walking after being shot, but would not comment on if the injury was life threatening at this time.

The suspect is still in the patrol car with a firearm. The car has been deactivated and law enforcement is able to contact the suspect.

Trooper Foster stated that the situation is contained to the vehicle and there is no threat to the public at this time.

Officers are treating the situation as a barricaded subject, not a standoff.

There are multiple law enforcement agencies on the scene assisting with the situation.

This is a developing story.
