Florida Police Shoot and Kill Suicidal Woman Armed with Knives

Florida police officers shot and killed a woman after she charged at them armed with two knives, following a suicide threat in an apartment. The incident occurred on Friday, when the woman’s boyfriend called 911 to report that she was suicidal and threatening to kill herself with a knife.

A trained member of the Crisis Negotiation Team reached out to talk to the woman on the phone, while officers trained in crisis intervention were dispatched to the scene at an apartment complex in Lake Nona, Florida. During the negotiations, the woman came out of the apartment holding a knife and then went back inside. She later came out again with two knives and charged towards the officers, prompting them to shoot her.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement will also investigate the shooting.
