Police: Woman shot, killed after attacking officers with knife
A woman was shot and killed by police in the Roseland neighborhood after officers say she attacked them with a knife.
Relatives rushed to the scene after the shooting.
It happened late Thursday evening near 109th and Eberhart.
The brother of a 63-year-old woman had called 9-1-1, saying she was “tearing up the house”, and had a knife.
The brother also told the operator the woman had a history of drug and alcohol problems.
Police say the woman refused to drop the knife when they arrived, and they shot her.
It happened less than ten blocks from where officers killed a man who stabbed a police sergeant Tuesday night.
The two incidents are not related.
