stopped but officers said she would not surrender. as deputies approached the car they say that she drove her car in reverse toward the officers hitting three of them and a patrol car and that is when several deputies fired at her. they fired several rounds. they hit her more than once. they said in the press release it was an undetermined number of times that she was shot. she was taken to the hospital and officers say they do not know her condition. one deputy was treated and released from the hospital after being hit by that car and two others suffered minor injuries. at this point they have not released any information about who this woman is. reporting live just outside sebastopol, amy hollyfield abc 7 news. 6:05 now. the search will resume this morning for a cupertino teen who vanished without a trace. 17-year-old connor sullivan showed up for his first class monday morning.
