A 16-year-old boy and a man are facing charges in an Aurora shooting and carjacking that left a woman paralyzed.

Kimberly Weibring, 46, was eating in her car in the Wendy’s parking lot in the 1200 block of North Orchard Road about 4 p.m. on Jan. 16 when at least two people pulled up in a Ford Escape, Aurora police said.

The pair pulled Weibring out of her red 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe, shot her in the back and drove off in her car, police said.

Aurora police and the FBI located the car on Jan. 20 in Harvey and found bullet holes in and outside the car, according to police. Weibring is paralyzed from the waist down, officials have said.

Police arrested Edward James McGee, 26, and the teenage boy this week. Both are charged with felony aggravated battery with a firearm, aggravated vehicular hijacking, armed violence, and two counts possession of a stolen vehicle.

The boy is also charged with felony unlawful use of a weapon and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, officials said.

The boy, who was 15 at the time of the carjacking, was not named because he is charged as a juvenile.
