EMERYVILLE, Calif. (AP) - Police in Northern California shot and killed two suspects in unrelated incidents Tuesday.

An Emeryville police officer shot and killed a woman authorities say drew a weapon outside a retail store after a shoplifting incident Tuesday afternoon.

Police responded to the store after receiving complaint of a combative theft suspect, the Oakland Tribune reported (https://tinyurl.com/o3hb5o2). The store also reported the suspect, a woman, was armed. She was shot a short time later outside the store. No further details were available and she wasn’t identified. Oakland and Emeryville police said they were investigating.

Earlier Tuesday, the Contra Costa Sheriff’s Department reported that a suspect in Antioch, California, was shot and killed in an unrelated incident.

Sheriff’s spokesman Jimmy Lee said deputies went to an apartment to carry out a move-out order in a domestic violence case when the target of the order charged at a deputy with a weapon.

The deputy fired his duty weapon striking the armed man, who was pronounced dead at the scene, Lee said.

The officer involved shooting will be investigated by the Contra Costa district attorney’s office, the sheriff’s office and Antioch police, he added.
