  • CHICAGO (AP) — Police responding to a domestic disturbance in Chicago have shot and killed a woman who threatened officers with a butcher knife.

    A statement from the Police Department’s News Affairs office says the confrontation took place Thursday evening in the South Side Roseland neighborhood.

    A relative of the woman had called police and told officers she was armed with a knife and possibly on drugs.

    The police statement says the woman refused orders to drop the knife and approached the officers in a threatening way. Officers fired, and the woman was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

    None of the officers was injured.
