Woman arrested after shooting at police, barricading in Phoenix home
PHOENIX — A woman was arrested after allegedly shooting at officers outside a Phoenix home on Monday afternoon, according to authorities.
Phoenix Police were at the residence near 51st Avenue and Greenway Road with a representative from the neighborhood services department and volunteers to help the homeowner clean up the yard around 2 p.m.
While speaking with the homeowner, police say 51-year-old Larisa Boulais exited the home and fired shots at the officers.
Police helped get neighborhood services and the volunteers off the property and then attempted to find the woman.
Boulais came back out of the house and pointed a gun at officers when one officer fired at the woman, according to authorities.
She retreated back into the home and police negotiated with her for several hours before making entry and arresting Boulais before 10 p.m.
Boulais was treated for minor injuries after being struck by less-lethal rounds during the negotiations.
There were no injuries to officers or other community members, according to authorities.
Boulais was booked into the Maricopa County Jail for aggravated assault on an officer, aggravated assault on a non-officer, misconduct involving weapons and endangerment, according to a press release.
It was the fifth shooting of the year involving Phoenix police and 11th overall by Valley law enforcement, according to KTAR News 92.3 FM research.
