Multiple charges filed against woman shooter
NEW HAVEN — The city’s gunshot locator system reported gunfire Saturday in the area of Munson and Orchard streets.
The shooter, a 31-year-old West Haven woman, was still holding the gun when officers found her, police said.
The incident occurred at 7:52 a.m. Saturday and police say the woman appeared to be high on "Illy," a hallucinogenic drug that includes PCP.
According to police, ShotSpotter sent police to the area on the report of gunshots and, when police arrived on County Street, a witness reported that a woman who had been firing the handgun had run onto Munson Street.
When officers found Jennifer Burridge in front of 320 Munson St., police say, she was still holding a .40-caliber pistol. She dropped it when officers ordered her to do so.
In addition to the handgun, police also allegedly took a large amount of Illy from her and charged her with unlawful discharge of a firearm, carrying a firearm under the influence, reckless endangerment, carrying a pistol without a permit, criminal possession of a firearm, theft of a firearm, illegal possession of hallucinogenic substance and illegal possession near a school, police said.

1st- the "gunshot locator system"
2nd- the "psychedelic drug 'lilly' containing PCP' - never heard of it before...
