Pursuit ends in arrest at Healthplex
After Norman police engaged in a pursuit Wednesday night, one of the suspects who fled from the vehicle was found in the Norman Regional Healthplex.
Quinshod Kayla Shaw, 23, of Spencer, was charged Thursday in Cleveland County District Court with endangering others while eluding a police officer.
Norman police attempted to make a traffic stop around 7 p.m. Wednesday after observing Shaw speeding southbound on Interstate 35, according to the affidavit filed with the charge.
Shaw led police on a short pursuit through the Journey Church parking lot, driving around vehicles and attempting to get away from police. Driving around 60 miles per hour through the west side or front of the church parking lot, Shaw almost collided with several occupied vehicles and pedestrians and children trying to enter the church, the affidavit said.
Exiting the parking lot on the south end, Shaw then jumped out of the vehicle while it was still moving and ran south. The vehicle jumped a curb and stopped between a building and a construction fence.
