"Baltimore County police have said they shot dead a woman after she pointed a gun at them and threatened to kill them. The woman’s five-year-old son was also shot, but it is not clear by whom.

Police engaged in an hours-long standoff with Korryn Gaines, 23, at an apartment in Randallstown in the north-west of the city.

Police said that Gaines, who was seated on the floor with her five-year-old son in her arms, repeatedly pointed a gun at officers and said she was going to kill them if they didn’t leave.

An officer fired at Gaines, who shot back several rounds. When the police fired again, they killed her. It was not made clear where the child was when the shooting took place.

The five-year-old was taken to hospital with a gunshot wound but is expected to survive, police said.

Gaines’s uncle, Jerome Barnett, 44, called his niece ‘feisty, but smart and respectful.’

‘My niece is a good person,’ he said.

The officers were placed on routine administrative leave. Their names will be released 48 hours after the incident."

Without more info it seems as though the police just got tired of trying to talk her round.
