An East St. Louis woman is being charged with seven felonies in connection with an incident that left a man with a gunshot wound in his leg.

Jacqueline Adams, 19, is charged with aggravated battery/discharging a firearm, possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of a stolen firearm, unlawful possession of a handgun by a person under 21-years-old, aggravated fleeing, and criminal damage to property.

Police were called to the 1500 block of Michael Dr. about a victim shot in the upper leg around 11:50 a.m on Saturday.

The man was found outside a neighbor’s home while the neighbor attempted to assist with the victim’s gunshot wound.

The victim told police he was shot inside his home by a woman he knew. Adams then took the victim’s car and drove off.

The man was taken to a local hospital in stable condition.

Officers then searched for the vehicle and located it as it was heading into East St. Louis. Police say Adams then attempted to flee from police.

While fleeing, she left the roadway and was involved in a single-car crash in the 6100 block of MaryBelle in East St. Louis.

Adams attempted to flee the accident by running off but was eventually taken into custody.

Adams is being held in St. Clair County Jail on a $200,000 bond.
