Female Shooter Opens Fire On Cop Who Was Driving Behind Her

Desiree Breshay Smith was found in possession of a stolen handgun following a brief pursuit.

Fayetteville, NC – A Fayetteville police officer came under fire as he was working on Nov. 24.

The incident began at 11:22 p.m., when the officer spotted a 2006 Chevrolet Impala as it blew through a stop sign at the intersection of Fieldcrest Drive and Dashland Drive, The Fayetteville Observer reported.

When the officer pulled in behind the Impala, the driver opened fire on him before he even attempted to stop her, WNCN reported.

“As soon as he saw that she was firing shots, he initiated his emergency equipment and she began to flee,” Fayetteville Police Sergeant Jeremy Glass told WRAL.

The shooter, later identified as 26-year-old Desiree Breshay Smith, sped away from the scene, but was apprehended by the same officer a short while later after her vehicle broke down, according to WRAL.

When Smith stepped out of her vehicle, three shell casings fell from her lap onto the ground. The handgun she fired at the officer was also recovered at the scene.

Investigators said the weapon had been reported as stolen.

The officer’s patrol vehicle was not hit by any of the suspect’s bullets, and the officer did not return fire during the attack, according to WRAL.

Sgt. Glass said that Smith did not have any outstanding warrants at the time of the shooting, and that her motive for opening fire on the officer was unknown.

She was not cooperative with investigators, he added.

Smith was arrested for possession of a stolen firearm, assault with a deadly weapon on a government official, flee to elude arrest, careless and reckless driving, and failure to stop at a stop sign.

She was initially booked into the Cumberland County Detention Center on a $25,000 secured bond, WNCN reported.

During her court hearing on Nov. 25, Smith claimed that she was a student with a stable job, and denied having prior run-ins with law enforcement, according to WTVD.

“I’ve never been in trouble before – never ever,” she told the judge, according to WRAL. “I’m not guilty of anything they’re saying. I work. I go to school.”

The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office disputed her claims, and Judge Stephen Stokes jacked her bond up to $100,000, WTVD reported.

Smith’s next court appearance has been scheduled for Dec. 12.

So I guess it was the ghost in the car that was doing the shooting and prior to you stepping out of the car he threw the shell casings in your lap. Good Defense let me know how that works out for you.

In Chicago, if she was charged she would’ve been released on her own recognizance

She still had the gun - use of deadly force justified - her choice!

I applaud the judge that raised her bail. You can tell by the look on her face in that first photo that she's just another hood rat with an attitude. She should have been charged with attempted murder.

Of course all you’ll hear is “she’s a good girl” and “you don’t know what it’s like if you ain’t black”. She’s a friggin criminal that won’t ever be changed.

It was very windy that day so I suppose the wind might have blown the gun into the car and she just didn't notice it. 🤔

Her defense will be as follows: first all her family and friends will say what a great girl she is and could never do anything like this. If that doesn't work they will say she has mental issues. And if that doesn't work they will play the race card.

No other ethnicity is as violent as all the blacks we see on the news daily. Where are videos of mobs of whites, hispanics and asians violently causing destruction across the US? Still waiting...crickets chirping

If you’re going to fire on an officer and then flee, at least make sure your car doesn’t break down as you take off. Then again, she doesn’t strike me as a candidate for Mensa.

Apparently she needs to go back to school and master her BS. She should have been held without bail for shooting at an officer. 😡

There was no reference to the patrol car’s dash cam recordings particularly if the recording supports the suspect’s story or the law enforcement officer’s account.
