FALLS TOWNSHIP, Pa. — A woman who police say pointed a semi-automatic handgun at police during a wellness check on Saturday, and then led them on a high-speed chase has been located in New Jersey with two dogs.

Falls Township police said an officer was flagged down to check on a woman sitting outside a blue Mitsubishi hatchback with the driver's side door open at the Fairless Hills Self Storage facility on South Oxford Valley Road at the Fairless Hills Town Center around 4 p.m., according to the affidavit in the case. Fairless Hills is a section of Falls Township.

The affidavit in the case said when the officer confronted the woman, later identified as Karen Marie Stevens-Nunez, she stood up, reached into the car and pulled out a gun. The officer, fearing for his life, went back into his vehicle and gave an order over the loudspeaker to drop the weapon, according to the affidavit.

Stevens-Nunez instead is accused of driving off and running a red light turning out of the storage facility. The affidavit said the officer followed her onto South Oxford Valley Road and Trenton Road, as she yelled out the window at him and fumbled with the gun which was in a cardboard box. The officer's speed hit 89 mph as he lost sight of Stevens-Nunez, according to the affidavit.

The Mitsubishi was covered with handwritten messages like "hate hurts," "don't let them violate you (illegible) renters" and "true blue," according to officials.
