PHOENIX — A 19-year-old Glendale woman who allegedly shot at officers after breaking into cars in a Peoria parking lot on Thursday has been arrested, authorities said.

Marissa Maguire was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on several charges that include aggravated assault after being released from the hospital for an injury that she sustained to her cheek during the exchange of gunfire with police, the Peoria Police Department said in a press release.

Police initially reported her name as Autumn Burton but said Friday that she’d given them a false name.

The incident occurred around 1:30 p.m. near 67th and Peoria avenues with police responding to multiple calls about a woman that was possibly breaking into vehicles in a parking lot.

When officers attempted to make contact with Maguire, the woman allegedly pointed a gun at them and fired an unknown number of times at the officers, police said.

Officers returned fire with at least one round striking her in the cheek, police said.

Maguire was then taken into custody without further incident and medical treatment was provided, police said.

The woman has since been turned over to the Glendale Police Department who will lead the investigation.

It was the second shooting of the year involving Peoria police and 33rd overall in the Valley by law enforcement, according to KTAR News 92.3 FM research.
