The Post’s Liz Navratil and Jessica Fender report:
Lee Grace Dougherty told FBI agents that she and her brothers “weren’t trying to hurt anyone,” when they emerged from their wrecked Subaru Wednesday pointing weapons at pursuing deputies and troopers.
Lee Grace Dougherty ran through a field after the crash, at one point pulling a handgun on Walsenburg Police Chief James Chamberlain before he shot her in the leg.
“We weren’t trying to hurt anyone. We just wanted them to get back,” Dougherty told agents.
“I pointed the gun at the cop,” she said, according to the affidavits. “I deserved to get shot… Instantly, I let go of the gun… the pain was all through my body.”

AP—The FBI says it has a “credible” lead in the D.B. Cooper case involving the 1971 hijacking of a passenger jet over Washington state and the suspect’s legendary parachute escape.
The fate and identity of the hijacker dubbed “D.B. Cooper” has remained a mystery in the 40 years since a man jumped from a Northwest Orient Airlines 727 flight with $200,000 in ransom.
