ambulance(AP) — Omaha police have identified the woman whose gun discharged inside an ambulance on Monday.

Police said Tuesday that 24-year-old Justine Dubois was the patient when she apparently pulled a handgun and fired it.

Both Dubois and a paramedic were injured when the gun went off Monday afternoon. The paramedic was treated and released.

Dubois was being treated for a seizure before the shooting, but police said her injuries were not considered life threatening and they believe she may have been faking the seizure.

Police are still investigating the circumstances of the shooting, and the paramedic’s name has not been released.
