BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in northwestern Arizona say a woman is dead after a shooting involving a police officer.

Bullhead City police say they responded to a 911 call from a residence Sunday night with a woman saying she planned to shoot her girlfriend and then herself.

The first officer who arrived on the scene says he was confronted by woman pointing what appeared to be a handgun.

Police say the officer fired multiple shots at the 44-year-old woman, who was taken to a hospital where she later died.

Her name hasn’t been released yet.

Police say no other people were injured.

They say the handgun the woman had turned out to be a black airsoft gun which appeared to be a replica of a semi-automatic pistol.

Police say their investigation is ongoing.
