  • Investigators are trying to understand what motivated police to shoot a 93 year old woman to death.

    The NY Daily News reports:

    A 93-year-old woman wielding a revolver was shot to death by police in the rural Texas town of Hearne, authorities said.

    Neighbors said Pearlie Golden was a sweet woman known to most people of this predominantly black community as “Miss Sully.”

    The nonagenarian was shot five times, several witnesses told KBTX-TV.

    The fatal confrontation began when Golden’s nephew called cops after he took the elderly woman’s car keys because she no longer has a driver’s license.

    She grabbed a gun and threatened her nephew, KBTX-TV reported. When cops arrived around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Golden was outside the home waving the gun around.

    A one-paragraph press release issued by the department Wednesday said officers responded to a 911 call involving “a female with a gun.”

    What do you think happened? Did the police have to shoot her to death? Was there another way to apprehend her?
