Woman detained on $200K bail

Bail has been set at $200,000 for Teresa Sheehan, the mentally ill woman who was shot by police in her home after allegedly threatening them with a knife.

Sheehan was shot by police Aug. 7 after she allegedly threatened a social worker, and then police, with a knife. Sheehan, described by family members as mildly schizophrenic but not violent, survived, but was arrested and charged with five felony counts several days later. As of Thursday, she remained detained in a ward at the San Francisco General Hospital while she recovers.

Family members — some who came from the East Coast — attended her bail hearings this week.
