Police fatally shot a woman in Queens after she called 911 and then lunged at officers with a knife on Monday evening, officials said.


Based on the details I see this looks like a justified shooting. 
PIX 11 reports  patrol cars rushed to a 69th Street home after reports of a burglary in process, an NYPD spokesman said. When they arrived at the two-family home, a 54-year-old woman told officers there was an armed female intruder in the upstairs apartment

The officers rushed in and the woman followed behind them, then grabbed a knife, police said. Body camera footage shows an officer telling her to put the knife down, but the woman lunged and one of the officers in the home fired three times, hitting the woman in the torso. She did not survive.
