Woman shot after hitting 2 officers at traffic stop
Investigators consult while surveying the scene of a shooting involving Gainesville police on Skelton Road.
Two Gainesville Police Department officers and an Oakwood woman were injured early Tuesday morning after police say the woman eluded a traffic stop, hit the officers with her car and the officers fired shots at her. Cpl. Kevin Holbrook, police spokesman, said the officers attempted to stop the white passenger car at Bowman Drive and Skelton Road at about 4:30 a.m. Sherry Lang, Georgia Bureau of Investigation director of public affairs, identified the woman as Tracey Marie Dean, 42. “At the time, they were trying to pull her over because her headlights weren’t on, and then she attempted to elude,” Lang said.
