Officer shoots suspect at McDonald's

WILLOWICK, OH (WOIO) - A 48-year-old woman is recovering after being shot by police at the Willowick McDonald's on Vine Street.

The police-involved shooting happened around 8PM Wednesday night.

Police say Noelle Schulze walked into the restaurant and told a female manager to clear the place. The woman appeared to have a gun in her pocket.

When officers arrived on scene, the suspect and manager walked outside.

The manager was released, but then Schulze apparently pointed what was in her pocket at officers.

One officer shot Schulze twice. She was struck in the torso and taken to Hillcrest.

Police say it is unclear if the manager and Schulze knew each other.
