Woman Commits Suicide in Front of Police

New Orleans Police officers received a call about 8 a.m. from a man who said his wife was threatening to commit suicide at their home in the 2800 block of Laurel Street, Officer Garry Flot said.

When police arrived on the scene, Flot said, they found the woman standing in the driveway and spoke with her briefly.

At some point in the conversation the woman walked over to a van and took out a handgun. The officers then ordered the woman to drop the weapon, Flot said.

“As the officers were retreating from the situation they heard a gun being fired,” Flot said, adding that one of the officers then fired one shot.

The woman died on the scene.
