GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) - Police in Kentucky say officers shot a suicidal woman after she pointed a gun at them.

The Georgetown Police Department said in a news release that officers drove to a subdivision Monday morning upon receiving a report about an armed woman inside a vehicle who was threatening suicide.

Georgetown Police Chief Mike Bosse says the unidentified woman pointed the gun at officers who were trying to negotiate with her, prompting an officer to fire multiple shots. Bosse didn’t know how many shots were fired.

The woman was hospitalized and her condition was not immediately clear.

Officers had been called to the woman’s house numerous times and had taken her to a medical facility the previous night for an evaluation.

Police say they found a loaded gun inside the car.
