Los Angeles Police Department officers shot and killed a woman who allegedly pointed a BB gun in their direction in Westlake Wednesday night.
Officers responded to Silver Lake Boulevard and Temple Street just before 8 p.m. after reports of a woman pointing a gun at a passerby, the LAPD said in a press release.
When officers arrived, the woman allegedly pointed her gun at officers, who then opened fire.
The woman, believed to be in her 40s, was declared dead at a local hospital.
No officers were injured, and a carbon dioxide-powered BB and pellet gun was recovered at the scene.
The investigation is ongoing.
