Police say, after a South Bend woman saw her stolen car driving by, she jumped into action and started firing a gun.

Roselyn Smith told police Tuesday her car was stolen after she went outside, started it, and let it sit to warm up.

In that car, were the keys to another car she owned. She says it was this car that was stolen this morning from her house in the 500 block of Pennsylvania.

Smith said she was out talking to neighbors when she saw her car drive past. She started chasing it, and in doing so, fired several shots near Sample and Fellows.

The car eventually crashed, and the driver fled on foot.

Police are still investigating the matter. It's not known if Smith will face any charges.
