    I feel that the lead was misleading. She was doing more than holding a meat cleaver. She was making an aggressive move toward the officer as he was backing up giving warning. A butcher holds a meat cleaver. Nough said………….j

    The officer was justified, but shots 3 and 4 were in direct line of the witness. Moving like that, I’d be worried of the witness being hit by a stray bullet. I know, in a situation like this, you have to react quickly. Good thing these officers train A LOT! Glad the officer is ok

      It says in the article that she was fatally shot and that the shooting was declared justified.
