Officers shot and killed a woman on Indianapolis' near north side Friday afternoon, police say.
According to Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Public Information Officer Genae Cook, at about 1:30 p.m. officers attempted to make a traffic stop on the 3800 block of Martin Luther King St. for an infraction. The vehicle was a Honda Pilot which was being driven by a white woman.
The vehicle fled, but officers did not pursue it, Cook said.
Then at about 2:30 p.m., officers were patrolling the area and located the vehicle in front of 556 Eugene St. As the vehicle was being towed, officers walked up to speak a white woman who was on the porch of the home, Cook said.
The woman then showed officers that she had a firearm, and officers ordered her not to make any motions for the weapon. Cook said the woman reached for the weapon, and four officers shot the woman. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Police have not identified the woman.
Cook could not confirm if the woman who was shot was the same woman who was driving the Honda Pilot. She said the matter is still under investigation. All of officers involved were wearing body cameras, which will be reviewed.
Cook added that the IMPD Critical Incident Response Team and the Marion County Prosecutor's Office responded to the scene, and will conduct a criminal investigation. The case will be sent to the IMPD Use of Force Review Board.
