6 12 2007

PASSAIC-Clifton police shot an unidentified woman last night in Passaic after she led them on a chase and tried to run down officers, authorities said.

Details were sketchy, but the woman was shot on Lafayette Avenue in the city of Passaic at about 9:30 p.m., according to Lt. Paul Haertel of the Clifton police. He said police do not know the woman’s name, age or address.

The woman was alert and conscious when she was taken to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson, the lieutenant said. Her condition was not immediately known.

The incident began in the 200 block of Clinton Avenue when Clifton police officers approached the woman, who appeared to be crying and slumped over the wheel of a car, the lieutenant said. But the woman sped off.

Officers gave chase, and the pursuit ended in Passaic when, Haertel said, the woman tried to run over several officers and police fired upon her.

It was not immediately clear which officers were involved or how many shots were fired.

The woman did not fire, and the car she was in was not stolen, the lieutenant said. Nj.com
