Police: Officers kill armed woman in apartment; boy wounded

RANDALLSTOWN, Md. (AP) — Baltimore County police say a woman who pointed a gun at police serving arrest warrants at her apartment was shot and killed by officers in a shooting that also left a 5-year-old boy wounded.

The department says in a news release that the boy who was in the apartment with 23-year-old Korryn Gaines was shot in a limb Monday and taken to a hospital. Police couldn’t immediately determine if he was shot by the woman or officers.

According to police, three officers went to Gaines’ apartment in Randallstown around 9:20 a.m. to serve arrest warrants on her and a man. Authorities say Gaines was wanted for failing to appear in court on traffic charges dating from a stop in March.
