According to reports, a Tennessee woman is in police custody after allegedly using her 5-year-old son as a human shield during armed carjackings.

Authorities say Bethany Wilson, 24, went on a carjacking spree that ended in a car crash on Thursday. Wilson reportedly stole three cars in the span of a few hours before the Interstate accident that led to her arrest.

Wilson’s first victim was a 51-year-old driver of a Nissan Juke at a local gas station as the victim was filling her gas tank. Wilson allegedly pulled out a gun and pointed it at the woman before taking off in the vehicle.

Per the New York Post, “Roughly a half hour later, cops got a call of shots fired at an intersection, where a man said Wilson allegedly stole his Mercedes Benz. The man told officers she fired one shot and used her 5-year-old as a human shield, the outlet reported.”

She was later found at a motel where she was taken into custody on charges of aggravated robbery. Her child was also with her and was unharmed.
