Police: Woman fired shots before Ohio officers killed her

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Police in southwest Ohio say three officers have killed a woman after she fired shots into the air and threatened to kill her domestic partner.

The woman has been identified as 35-year-old Kisha Arrone of Dayton.

Dayton police issued a statement that says officers responded early Sunday to a call about shots being fired. Witnesses told police Arrone shot into the air after putting the gun to her partner’s head.

Police say officers found Arrone driving a pickup truck and used spike strips to flatten her tires when she refused to stop. Police say Arrone exited the truck and fired more shots into the air as she walked toward her partner, prompting officers to fire fatal rounds.

The three officers have been placed on administrative leave.
