Officers were attempting to arrest her in connection to a December shooting when she fled in a car, colliding with several Wilmington Police vehicles as she drove out onto northbound I-95.

According to police, Stewart crashed the car at the I-95 off ramp at Market Street in Delaware County, exchanged gunfire with Delaware State troopers, then carjacked an SUV.

She then rolled the stolen SUV at the Kerlin Street off ramp in Chester, crawled out of the wreckage, and broke into an occupied home.

She took the homeowners car keys and stole their car.

As she was driving out from behind the home she drove in the direction of police officers from several agencies who had converged at the scene.

At least ten officers, including five Delaware State troopers and three Wilmington Police officers opened fire.

Stewart was pronounced dead at the scene.
