🕐 1 min read

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Police fatally shot an armed North Texas woman whose husband described her as suicidal.

Arlington police say the 51-year-old woman was shot dead Sunday when she pointed a handgun at two officers who approached her as she drove her sport utility vehicle in her driveway.

Lt. Christopher Cook said officers went to the house about 10 a.m. after a man reported his wife showed signs of trying to harm herself. He also reported that a handgun was missing from his gun case.

Cook says that officers went to the house but the woman wouldn’t answer their knocks. The officers went to the back and saw the woman was starting to pull away in her SUV. Cook says that when the woman pointed a handgun at one officer, both officers opened fire.
