The unidentified suspect allegedly tried to flee the scene on foot but was quickly confronted by police and taken into custody at gunpoint.

Police were still (11:29 a.m.) at the scene trying to interview victims and witnesses as this was written.

  1. Why should SHE be released? Multiple felonies committed.

    Felony reckless driving
    Felony thefts
    Multiple hit and run

  2. Hit at least 2 other cars that I saw and if she wasn’t doing 100 she was pretty close. Was she going to a crime or running from one???

  3. Veering from the political to the observational. Steering the political commentary to our Letters forums…
