KSAL StaffAugust 24, 2017

Authorities are investigating after officers were involved in a deadly shooting in the Kansas City suburb of Olathe.

Johnson County authorities say 26-year-old Ciara Howard, who is from the Kansas City metro area, was shot Wednesday evening while police and deputies were trying to serve a warrant to her.

Olathe police and Johnson County Sheriff deputies say Howard, who is from the Kansas City metro area, resisted arrest and was in a standoff that lasted several hours.

When officers eventually tried to arrest her, Howard allegedly threatened them with a weapon.

The Kansas City Star reports two Olathe police officers and one deputy fired at Howard, killing her.

No officers or deputies were injured.
