New York Police Officer Fatally Shoots 66-Year-Old Bronx Woman

A 66 year old woman was shot and killed in her Bronx apartment by a New York City police sergeant after allegedly charging at him with a baseball bat.

NBC 4 New York reports that officers responded to a 911 call from her neighbors and found the woman in her apartment naked and holding a pair of scissors. After being convinced to put the scissors down, the woman “picked up a baseball bat and tried to hit him with it.”

The officer then fired two shots, striking the woman in her torso. She was transported to Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx and died shortly thereafter.
