STATEN ISLAND — A woman was injured in a police-involved shooting in Staten Island Sunday afternoon, authorities said.
She’d allegedly been seen breaking into a Sunnyside Avenue home with a brick and a firearm around 12:45 p.m., police said. Officers responding to a 911 call for the break in pulled over a black SUV and fired five shots after the woman inside apparently got out and pulled out a gun while police were detaining a man inside the vehicle.
The woman was hit one time in the shoulder. Lori Gjenashaj was taken into custody, and a gun was recovered from the scene, according to authorities.
She has no prior arrests. The woman is currently in stable condition at the hospital.
