MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - The Monongalia County sheriff says more information will be released next week on the fatal police shooting of a Morgantown woman.

Christie Cathers was killed by police gunfire June 5. Two deputies have been on paid administrative leave since the shooting.

The Dominion Post (https://bit.ly/1TDHZTY) said it has requested video taken by police and the 911 tapes of the incident. Police have refused, citing an investigation.

Investigators have said 45-year-old Cathers attempted to run down a deputy with her vehicle before she was shot. They had been pursuing Cathers after witnesses said she displayed a knife to some residents and demanded that a teenager get into her vehicle.

Sheriff Al Kisner said Friday his office and Mon County Prosecuting Attorney Marcia Ashdown will hold a joint press conference next week.
