GBI Investigate Police-Involved Shooting of Woman

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is trying to learn more about what the Associated Press is calling a police-involved shooting. That shooting is reported to have left a 41 year old woman injured and hospitalized.

Alpharetta police say a caller asked officers to check on a woman who sent a text message regarding a threat to commit suicide. A police spokesman says when they arrived at the scene police were confronted by a woman who was emotionally upset.  The spokesman says the woman went into another part of the house, grabbed a firearm and pointed it at the police officers. He says that prompted one of the officers to open fire on the woman. The wounded woman was taken to North Fulton Hospital. A GBI spokesperson says the police have asked the agency to investigate the officer's use of deadly force.
