Suburban Chicago police investigating a domestic disturbance fatally shot a 64-year-old woman Sunday who was armed with a knife when officers arrived at the door of her apartment, police said.
Illinois State Police, who are investigating the deadly shooting, said Monday the woman was holding a knife when Flossmoor officers arrived at the door of her apartment in the Cook County village about noon Sunday.
Officers shot the woman, who was identified by the Cook County medical examiner’s office as Madeline Miller. She was pronounced dead shortly after 1 p.m. Sunday at a hospital in Hazel Crest, the medical examiner’s office said.
Miller suffered multiple gunshot wounds and her death was ruled a homicide by the medical examiner, the Daily Southtown reported.
