Police said a woman wanted in connection with recent shootings sped away from an officer who was trying to take her in, then drove her vehicle toward him.

Shavoria Green, 24, of 1513 Wheeler Ave., is facing a host of charges. They include aggravated assault, driving without proper registration, not having insurance, reckless endangerment, evading arrest, and leaving the scene of an accident.

Police said she was wanted "for questioning by the CPD gun team for several shots fired calls with the use of a firearm." Police said she is a convicted felon and was wanted for felony reckless endangerment with use of a firearm, felony vandalism, and theft of property.   

In the incident on Monday, an officer said he saw her on Wheeler Avenue in a black Chevrolet Impala. She led the officer on a chase before crashing into an unoccupied pickup truck on Dodson Avenue.

The officer said the Impala had severe driver-side damage from that crash. However, Ms. Green revved the vehicle back up and came toward him, almost striking him. She then drove off.

She was later apprehended.
