Armed woman dies in officer-involved shooting, police say

A 29-year-old woman was killed after an overnight officer-involved shooting in which she fled from officers and fired a handgun, according to Des Moines police.

Des Moines police Sgt. Paul Parizek said in a news release that Tiffany Potter, of Des Moines, was shot by an officer around 2 a.m. Wednesday in the driveway of a home in the 1600 block of East 14th Street.

Authorities said the residents at the home have no connection to Potter, who was taken to a nearby hospital, where she later died of her injuries shortly thereafter.

Parizek said Potter was driving a vehicle and was attempting to evade officers because of possible drug-related offenses, but he said officials will never know for sure.

Hear the moment cops shoot knife-wielding pregnant woman

A dramatic dash-cam audio recording captures the moment Seattle police fatally opened fire on a knife-wielding woman who relatives said was pregnant and suffered from mental-health issues.

In the recording — issued by Seattle police — officers can be heard shouting, “Hey! Get back! Get back!” before an eruption of gunfire. A child is crying in the background.

The officers arrived at 30-year-old Charleena Lyles’ fourth-floor Magnuson Park apartment around 10 a.m. Sunday after she called to report a burglary, according to the Seattle Police Department’s online crime-blotter page. At some point, Lyles displayed a knife — and both responding officers opened fire, killing her.

Woman accused in ex-husband’s slaying still blaming son at retrial

Lanny Horwitz’s designer luggage was packed for a trip with a lady friend and business partner when he stepped into the shower. Then his ex-wife Donna entered the bathroom and fired 10 shots from two guns until Horwitz, 66, was mortally wounded, a prosecutor said Wednesday.

The Sept. 30, 2011 shooting was her way of making a statement, Palm Beach County Assistant State Attorney Aleathea McRoberts told the jury at the start of Donna Horwitz’s retrial: “I’m not taking it anymore because you are Mr. Meanie.”

But attorneys for Horwitz, 70, say it was another occupant in the Jupiter residence that had the true motive and opportunity for the killing — her son Radley.
