LEWISTON — A woman was apparently shot by police late this afternoon after a chase through the city that ended in a crash on Central Avenue behind Raymond A. Geiger Elementary School.
Witnesses at the scene said they heard between three and five gunshots after the pickup driven by an unidentified woman apparently failed to negotiate a right-hand curve and crashed into a parked vehicle at 384 Central Ave.
After the crash, witnesses on the scene said she put the vehicle in reverse and backed up about 100 feet into a tree. The truck showed minimal damage.
A police officer on the scene had a bleeding hand, but it was not known how that injury occurred.
