Atlanta Police Shoot Woman Allegedly Stabbing Her Child

ATLANTA (WAOK)-Atlanta police say they opened fire and killed a woman in northwest Atlanta, Monday afternoon, after she refused an order to drop a knife she was using to stab her child. Police were called to the home on Abner Place, after another child, an 8-year old boy ran to a neighbor’s home and told them he escaped, after his mother choked him, then threw him out of a window. Investigators have not identified the dead woman, but say police shot her, multiple times. It’s unclear if the young child who was also killed, died from the gunfire or from the stab wounds.
