A North Richland Hills officer shot at a woman during a police chase in which the woman tried to ram into a police car in Hurst, police said.

The woman, Trisha Boner, 29, was arrested Wednesday and is facing evading arrest and aggravated assault on a public servant charges, a Hurst Police Department news release said.

At about 3:30 p.m., a Tarrant County Precinct 3 deputy tried to stop a car for a traffic offense and a short chase started, police said in a press release. During the chase, the woman tried to ram into the deputy’s car twice.

North Richland Hills officers saw the car drive past and crash into the AT&T store at 464 Grapevine Highway in Hurst.

Officers tried to arrest the woman and in the attempt, a North Richland Hills officer fired his weapon. The woman then ran away again.

The woman and a blue Hyundai sedan were seen at Wells Fargo at 6300 Precinct Line Road in Hurst, where she appeared to be skimming credit car information from a drive-up ATM, police said.

Boner was taken into custody and taken to Hurst jail. There were no reported injuries.
