Officials say that two victims were stopped at a stop sign when a woman, now identified as Julia A. Shields, pulled up next to them in a dark colored sedan and fired a single round into their vehicle.

Shields struck the radiator and disabled it.

After that incident, police began to receive several calls about Ms. Shields pointing her weapon at people as she drove by.

Officers located Ms. Shields in the parking lot of Stuart Heights Baptist Church.

As soon as Shields saw the cops, she fled the scene and sent police into a pursuit.

Shields led the officers down Highway 153 and Hixson Pike where she continued to point her gun at other drivers as she drove by them.

The pursuit ended at the intersection of Cloverdale Drive and Koblan Drive. Shields pointed her weapon at officers when they finally got her stop.

Ms. Shield was taken into custody without incident or injury and found to be wearing body armor during the incident.

Shields has been charged with 3 counts of Attempted First Degree Murder, 7 counts of Aggravated Assault, Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Felony, Felony Evading Arrest, and Felony Reckless Endangerment.
