The car kept going even after officers threw down spike strips. Investigators say at one point, Gabrielle fired shots at officers through the rear window.

When the car finally stopped, police say Gabrielle and a woman jumped out and tried to make a run for it, but did not get far. Gabrielle is now facing federal assault and gun charges.
