Police in Venango County on Tuesday night shot and killed a woman who they say was attacking an officer with a knife.

Troopers were called to investigate the shooting by Oil City police that occurred shortly before 9 p.m. along Central Avenue, said Capt. Steve J. Ignatz, commanding officer of state police Troop E based in Erie.

“Preliminary indications are that the officers were responding to a call of a person with reported mental issues,” Ignatz said. “We were told that the woman approached an officer with a knife and that person shot and killed her.”

No other information was immediately available.
