SILVER LAKE — A standoff with a “combative woman” ended tonight when she was shot by police after she emerged from a residence armed with a rifle, according to the LAPD.
The standoff began at about 3:30 p.m. when police were called to the 1300 block of Edgecliff Drive, said Mike Lopez with LAPD Media Relations. When the woman came out with the gun, officers fired a non-lethal “bean bag” device that failed to subdue her. That’s when police opened fire with guns, striking the woman, Lopez said. She was taken to a hospital to be treated for her injuries.
No officers were injured.
Lopez did not have information when the woman was shot but a Twitter user reported hearing gunfire at about 6 pm.
No further details were available from the LAPD.
