Santa Cruz Area ‘Wanted Widow’ Injured In 2nd Shootout With Cops

SOQUEL, Santa Cruz Co. (CBS/AP) — A California widow who eluded capture after firing a shot at a police officer during a car chase last month has been wounded during her weekend arrest.

Santa Cruz County sheriff’s investigators say 30-year-old Amanda Sloan was shot in the leg during a confrontation on Sunday with deputies after she returned to the family home in Soquel Hills.

She was hospitalized and was expected to survive.

Deputies say Sloan she stuck a gun out of the sunroof of a BMW and shot at a Capitola officer during a pursuit on Nov. 11.

Her 28-year-old husband, Jeffrey Stephensen Smith, was shot to death in August.

Colin Sean Tisdale was identified as a suspect but charges hadn’t been filed. He was in jail on drug allegations.
