MILWAUKEE (AP) - A Milwaukee teenager faces charges on accusations he shot a 53-year-old woman in the face during a carjacking last week.
The 17-year-old is charged with several crimes, including armed robbery.
Officers responded to a report of a stolen vehicle when they say they heard several gunshots nearby. They found a woman bleeding from her face, and she was taken to a hospital for treatment of her injuries.
Court records say the 17-year-old was seen driving off in the woman’s vehicle. Officers later found the vehicle and saw the teenager get inside.
Authorities attempted to pull over the vehicle but the teenager fled, leading police on a pursuit. Police say the teenager lost control of the vehicle and that he eventually was arrested.
