JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A Florida woman crashed her car Friday night then wandered from the accident pointing a gun multiple times at people before she opened fire inside a Sam’s Club, investigators said.
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said the bizarre incident unfolded after a woman, who has not been identified, crashed her car around 9:30 p.m. on Beach Boulevard, WJAX reported.
Deputies said the woman pointed a gun at people in the other vehicle that was involved in the crash but did not pull the trigger before running to a nearby Sam’s Club parking lot.
Officials said the woman then pointed the gun at people at a food truck but again did not pull the trigger before going to the entrance to the store, which was closed. She then fired multiple shots into the store, breaking the glass. She then entered the store through the broken glass. She walked around the store, which still had employees inside, and fired several rounds before leaving through a side door. The employees ran out when they realized it was gunfire.
Investigators said the woman never made contact with any employee. Officers arrived and the woman dropped the gun and was taken into custody.
She was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries investigators said. It is unclear if her injuries were sustained in the crash or when she walked through the broken glass.
No one else was injured.
Investigators said the woman faces numerous charges including aggravated assault and burglary with a firearm.
