SAN DIEGO, Calif. — A San Diego police officer shot and killed a 47-year-old woman who was holding a knife to the neck of her 85-year-old mother, police said today.
The incident began Wednesday night when police responded to a domestic-disturbance call and heard screaming from inside a home in the Mira Mesa neighborhood. After forcing their way into the home, officers found the younger woman holding her mother on the floor of a bedroom with a knife at her neck, said Capt. Jim Collins.
