OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Omaha authorities have released the names of two police officers who shot a 39-year-old woman who they say threw a knife and lunged toward one of them.

The officers were identified as 23-year-old Emilio Luna and 40-year-old Matthew Digilio.

Five officers responded late Tuesday afternoon to a report of an assault at a home. Police say the woman had three knives with her when she confronted Luna on her front porch and lunged at him. She’s been identified as Tiffany Terry.

Officers and witnesses say Terry ignored the officers’ shouts to drop the knife, and then Luna and Digilio fired when Terry threw the knife at Luna. She was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center with several wounds.
