OMAHA, Neb. (AP) A woman accused of firing a gun during a struggle inside an Omaha ambulance has been released from the hospital to face several charges.

Omaha Police Officer Michael Pecha said Sunday that 24-year-old Justine Dubois is now in the Douglas County jail.

Dubois was arrested last Monday because she was driving a stolen car, but then she appeared to have a seizure in the police car.

While paramedics were taking Dubois to a hospital, she pulled a gun and started making threats. Both Dubois and an Omaha firefighter were wounded in a struggle.

Dubois faces charges including assault, terroristic threats, using a gun to commit a crime and stealing a car.
