A Newark woman, suspected in a 48-hour crime spree in California, was attempting a daring escape by driving toward police when an officer opened fire at the woman's rental car, wounding her and her friend from Philadelphia, authorities said. California authorities began investigating the police-involved shooting while the Delaware woman, Rickita James, was recovering and facing several criminal charges including possession of a stun gun, identity theft, shoplifting and reckless evading. Since this incident, charges against 33-year-old James have been dropped after California authorities called into question San Mateo, California, Officer Juan Ramirez's actions on Sept.
