Widow who shot at officer wounded during arrest

SOQUEL, Calif. (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.

The Santa Cruz Sentinel (http://bit.ly/QBCdE6 ) says she's hospitalized and is 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 has been identified as a suspect but charges haven't been filed. He is in jail on drug allegations.
