A woman whose brother called 911 to report she was "tearing the house up" was shot and killed by police when she refused to drop a knife and advanced on a police officer.
Angelique Styles, 60, was shot around 6:40
p.m. in the home she shared with her brother in the 10900 block of South
Her brother told police she was "possibly under the influence of narcotics" and
had picked up a knife. When police entered the home,
the woman still had the knife and would not drop it, according to Pat Camden, a
spokesman for the Fraternal Order of Police.
The woman then started
approaching an officer with the knife and police shot her, Camden
The shooting was
just blocks from where officers shot a man who stabbed a police sergeant Tuesday
night. The sergeant received more than 50 stitches to his face, Camden said.
