A court document says the fugitive sister shot by police in Colorado after a nationwide manhunt told police she "deserved to get shot."

Twenty-nine-year-old Lee Grace Dougherty, 26-year-old Dylan Dougherty Stanley and 21-year-old Ryan Edward Dougherty are being held in Pueblo County, Colo., on bonds of $1.25 million each.

The three made their first court appearance Thursday in Pueblo, Colo., appearing by video from jail.

They face charges of attempted murder of a peace officer and assault on a peace officer. The charges stem from allegations that they shot at authorities in Colorado.

According to an arrest affidavit, Lee Dougherty was shot by Walsenburg, Colo., Police Chief James Chamblerlain after she pointed a machine gun at him. The document says she later told police, "I deserved to get shot."
