Two off-duty Florida law-enforcement officers fatally shot an armed, naked woman who confronted them at a party Saturday, authorities said.
The shooting occurred at about 1:15 p.m. Saturday in Hernando County, north of Tampa. The county sheriff’s office said in a news release that the men were approached by an “armed, naked and irrational female.” The news release does not identify the weapon, but it says “one or both of the law enforcement officers fired their weapons, striking the female.” She died at the scene.
Neinhuis said someone at the party called 911 to report her, but she returned to the gathering before police could arrive.
“She came back with a weapon and confronted both the Tampa police officer and my sheriff’s office detective,” Neinhuis told MyFoxTampaBay. “She came with a weapon and I would surmise that they felt their life was in danger.”
