A residential street in a neighbourhood on the south side of Sherwood Park was blocked off and investigators were on scene Monday morning after a fatal police shooting.
Sherwood Park RCMP said it received a call around 7:30 a.m. from a woman who “requested members attend her residence for assistance.”
Mounties said when they arrived, there was a confrontation with the woman and one of the police officers fired their gun.
The woman suffered a serious injury and was taken to hospital where she died, RCMP said, adding no officers were injured.
Sue Hughson, executive director of ASIRT, confirmed the agency has been directed to investigate the circumstances surrounding the officer-involved shooting.
