it must be a typing mistake:
But police hope she will eventually be able to provide more information about the shootings."
Will is followed by a lexical verb,never another (modal) auxiliary, so "I will can, I will must, I will will, I will may, I will should"..... are always wrong.
As pointed below, the lexical verb to will, meaning to want, exists but in your sentence it was the future of "to be able to"

The verb "to will" exists, and its future form is "will will".
Ex. "God willed the universe into existence, and one day He will will the universe out of existence."

I could find the verb 'will' here:
10.also intr to exercise the faculty of volition in an attempt to accomplish (something) ⇒ he willed his wife's recovery from her illness
11.to give (property) by will to a person, society, etc ⇒ he willed his art collection to the nation
12.also intr to order or decree ⇒ the king wills that you shall die
13.to choose or prefer ⇒ wander where you will
14.to yearn for or desire ⇒ to will that one's friends be happy
Anyway the use of 'will will' here is incorrect due to the following 'be able to'.
As gerondif said, the right sentence should be:
" But police hope she will eventually be able to provide more information about the shootings."
