Police shot and wounded a 26-year-old woman who was believed to be armed in Orange early Saturday morning.

Authorities received a 911 call that there was a woman with a gun in a burgundy Toyota at Sycamore and Spruce avenues at about 2:30 a.m. When police arrived, they saw the vehicle parked in the middle of the intersection of Sycamore Avenue and Cedar Street, one block east of Spruce Avenue.
