According to the Los Angeles Police Department, officers responded to multiple calls of a woman who was assaulting people on the 5700 block of Reseda Boulevard in Tarzana shortly after 8:00 AM.
When officers approached the suspect – who has been described as a 30-year-old Black female but whose name has not been identified – they found that she was armed with a metal pipe. Police then shot her.
She was initially in stable condition but has since died.
The metal pipe was recovered at the scene of the suspect’s shooting. No officers were hurt during the incident.
The news comes on the heels of an Alabama woman who was arrested and charged with assault after she attacked an officer during a traffic stop.
After the officer attempted to arrest her, she assaulted him, police say.
The officer sustained minor injuries and is expected to make a full recovery. Meanwhile, the suspect is charged with aggravated assault of a police officer and obstructing governmental operations. She was detained into the Madison County Jail where she is currently held on a $2,800 bond.
And in another incident earlier this year, a disturbing video surfaced showing an Ohio cop repeatedly punching a Black woman in the face while making an arrest.
In the footage, obtained by Dayton 24/7, two officers are seen standing in front of their cruiser while attempting to restrain the woman who has been identified as Latinka Hancock.
The beginning of the video has no audio but shows Hancock pushing the officers away while speaking with them. One cop, Tim Zellers, is seen pointing a stun gun at the woman while the other officer, Todd Stanley, restrains her arm and shoulder.
