Woman Killed In Police Shooting

Associated Press - March 27, 2015 6:55 am

Officers have shot and killed a woman in eastern Kansas after her boyfriend called for help.

Olathe police said in a news release that the shooting happened Thursday night after the boyfriend told dispatch that his girlfriend had fired a handgun inside a Gardner home. The release said two Gardner officers fired at the woman upon arriving at the home. The woman died at the scene, and her name wasn’t immediately released.

Neither officer was injured. They’ve both been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation.

The release provided no other details about what led up to the shooting.
