Chicago police officer shot in shoulder while serving warrant; 19-year-old woman charged

A 19-year-old woman is facing attempted murder and other charges after a Chicago police officer was shot Saturday night while serving a warrant, officials said.

Chicago police said in a news release that Emily Petronella was charged with aggravated assault of a peace officer, armed violence while discharging a weapon, aggravated discharge of a weapon at a peace officer and dealing more than 5,000 grams of cannabis in connection with the incident.

Officers were serving a search warrant just before 7:30 p.m. at the home in a neighborhood on the city's West Side when Petronella allegedly fired through a rear door, police said.
