Raoul Gadson, Chanel Barnes.
Well, at least they got one of them.
An officer shot and killed a 36-year-old Philadelphia woman who police say tried to run him over following an attempted shoplifting in a Deptford Township shopping center.
Police were called to the Marshalls department store at 1800 Celements Bridge Road at 3:40 Saturday afternoon for a shoplifting in progress.
As officers arrived to the scene three suspects, one man and two women, fled the store with a substantial amount of unpaid merchandise.
The male suspect, Raoul Gadson, was resisting with lost prevention agents from the store. Gadson fled on foot while the two women, LaShanda Anderson, 36, and Chanel Barnes, 27, attempted to flee in a rented Nissan Armada.
When officers outside of the vehicle commanded them to stop the driver, LaShanda Anderson, accelerated towards the officers.
A Patrol Captain was struck by the open driver-side door as the driver attempted to flee the scene. Anderson reportedly deliberately attempted to run over the second officer, a Sergeant. He fired three shots at the driver, hitting her twice.
