Police say after Amanda Fox Sloan was pulled over for a traffic violation around 10:30 p.m. Sunday, she started screaming and then sped away.
Det. Sara Ryan told the Santa Cruz Sentinel ( http://bit.ly/Q9oNAa) that as officers pursued her, she fired one shot through the sunroof of her car, but did not hit any officers.
Sloan escaped capture, but her car was later found in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
Sloan's husband—28-year-old Jeffrey Stephensen Smith—was fatally shot in the driveway of their home on Aug. 16.
Prosecutors say a suspect in the killing—50-year-old Colin Sean Tisdale—is being held on a separate drug charge, but has not been charged in his death.
