A woman who fired on an Omaha paramedic in the back of an ambulance was released from Creighton University Medical Center on Sunday and moved to the Douglas County Department of Corrections.
Justine Dubois, 24, faces charges of felony assault, terroristic threats, use of weapons, theft by receiving $1,500, possession of a gun by a prohibited person and a fugitive from justice in Sarpy County.
She is suspected of faking a seizure as part of an escape attempt after she was arrested in connection with a car theft last Wednesday.
An ambulance was called, and while Dubois was being transported, she pulled out a weapon. Brock Borhart, a paramedic and firefighter, suffered a superficial gunshot wound to the chest and Dubois was shot in the leg as he tried to disarm her.
Ambulance driver and paramedic Julianne Moran radioed a “help a firefighter” call, and police responded.
Police said they searched Dubois before putting her in the ambulance and didn’t find a gun. How she got the weapon is being investigated.
