Deputies: Woman shot man, robbed store in North Carolina crime spree

A woman accused of stealing a car and a gun from a home as she was fleeing from deputies was arrested after she robbed a convenience store and shot a homeowner in North Carolina who was chasing her away from his residence, authorities said.

The woman, who authorities have not identified, entered the first home on Monday while fleeing on foot from deputies responding to a report of a suspicious female at a gas station in Greensboro, the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.

Authorities said she then drove to another gas station in Greensboro with the car she stole from that home, and committed armed robbery for cigarettes.

After that, the woman entered the second home, which was across the street from the gas station, and stole another set of car key, the release said. That’s when the homeowner started to chase her away from his house and she shot him in the abdomen, according to deputies. His injuries were non-life-threatening.

The woman was confronted by deputies in the middle of the road as she attempted to leave the home and taken into custody. Charges against her are pending.
