A Staten Island woman, identified by authorities as Lori Gjenashaj, was rushed to Richmond University Medical Center on the Island with a gunshot wound to the shoulder, after she was shot by Cops in a scene like out of the movies.
The madness started when Lori drove to 767 Nugent Avenue within the confines of the 122nd Precinct and fired off shots from a revolver. Cops were called but Lori took off in a black 2018 GMC Acadia with a man in the passenger seat just before they arrived.
One of the responding Police units spotted the SUV heading north on Hylan Boulevard near Hunter Avenue a few blocks away but she refused to stop. The chase was on. During a brief stop of the SUV on Hylan Boulevard near Clove Road, Officers managed to remove the male passenger and take him into custody, but Lori took off again. The gun was not recovered at that time.
Officers in the surrounding Precincts were put on alert for the SUV. Officers from the 120th Precinct then spotted Lori inside the SUV near 166 Highland Avenue and moved in to make the arrest. According to authorities, Lori then brandished the gun at the Officers, causing them to open fire. Authorities stated that two Officers fired a total of five shots, striking her once in the shoulder. Both Officers were taken to Staten Island University Hospital North as a precaution. The Investigation into this crazy incident continues.
