A police officer shot and injured the driver of a stolen car early Thursday morning after chasing the car up Interstate 5 from Springfield to a gas station near Albany, the Linn County Sheriff's Office said.
The suspect, Amanda Gatewood, 44, of Springfield, was taken to a Corvallis hospital and is listed in critical condition.
According to the sheriff, Springfield Police were pursuing Gatewood in a stolen 2000 Suzuki Vitara north on Interstate 5. Officials said Gatewood took the Highway 34 exit and stopped at the entrance to the Chevron Gas Station on the west side of I-5.
She got out of the vehicle and started running toward the convenience store. Officers shot Gatewood when she pointed what appeared to be a handgun at officers, the Linn County Sheriff's Office said.

Our reporters on the scene said some people living in the mobile home park were asked to leave their homes. Forest officials have since downgraded the park back to a level 2 evacuation, which asks people to get ready to leave their homes.
Residents along La Duke and Harbour Roads are aslo under a level 2 evacuation, Willamette National Forest said.
Cooler evening temperatures and moderate fire behavior on the main fires helped crews successfully attack spot fires near the Deception Creek Mobile Home Park, said Willamette National Forest spokeswoman Jude McHugh.
