OMAHA (kptm) - A woman wanted in connection with a police shooting turns herself in.
Jennifer Lovings surrendered to police this afternoon. She and her attorney showed up at the Douglas county jail. Police say Lovings rammed her vehicle into unmarked police cars.
It happened Friday night at the Walgreen's off 50th and Center. Police say she refused to follow commands and an officer shot at the vehicle several times. Lovings fled the parking lot.
The vehicle was later found near 48th and "W" streets. The passenger, Jason Welch, was found inside with a gunshot wound. He is in critical condition.
"She was concerned about her own safety. Because first of all, she never rammed anybody, any of those police cars. When she was there with her boyfriend at Walgreen's she never saw any police cars and didn't see any people who were obviously police officers. She saw people running out in plain clothes with guns up to her car," Lovings' attorney James Martin Davis says.
He says Lovings claims the shooting of Jason Welch was unjustified and she says they shot an unarmed man.
Lovings was booked for assault on an officer, felony flight to avoid arrest, use of a weapon to commit a felony, and various drug charges.
Police also arrested six people in a meth bust earlier that night. They say those arrests are connected to this shooting.
It happened at a house near 65th and Wirt street.
Police say they found half a million dollars in meth. They also found nearly $100,000 in cash, three guns, and three body armor vests.
