The Henderson Police Department responds to a stabbing at an apartment complex Oct. 21, 2019.

HENDERSON (FOX5) -- Henderson Police said one of its officers shot and killed a mother involved in a "violent domestic incident" on Monday.

According to Lt. Kirk Moore, the victim of the incident called 9-1-1 to report it, and the call disconnected. Officers were sent to the 10000 block of S. Eastern Avenue to investigate.

On arrival, they found an "agitated" woman. They found her 7-year-old son with multiple stab wounds.

The boy was taken to University Medical Center and underwent emergency surgery. His condition was not known Monday night.

A "struggle ensued," according to police, and an officer fired at her. She was taken to Sunrise Hospital where she died.

Details of the incident between the mother and boy were unclear. 

This was the fourth officer-involved shooting for Henderson.

Details to be seen in a few years.


I notice you making this same criticism about more than one Fox 5 news story. Yet, from what I see, they are invariably updated when new info becomes available. What's your problem?
