BREAKING: Armed Woman Shot by Police During Standoff, Victim Airlifted to Trauma Center

BROOKSVILLE – A near two-hour standoff came to a violent end just moments ago, after a woman was shot several times by law enforcement officers at a residence on Cedar Drive.

Prior to the shooting, sources say Brooksville Police and Sheriff’s Deputies tried tirelessly to negotiate a peaceful surrender with the woman who continually threatened officers with a shotgun. Around 3:20 p.m., the armed woman stepped out of her residence with a shotgun in hand and was shot multiple times.

The victim has been airlifted to a trauma center for treatment but her condition is unknown at this time.

The victim is believed to be a woman in her 50’s but that information has not been confirmed.

RNRF captured the shooting on video and will post portions of the tragic event later this evening.

We are waiting on a statement from officials to verify what led to the woman arming herself and threatening law enforcement.

More on this story as it develops.

  • Why did Hillsborough’s Dept get involved? I’m confused about that. There were City Police and Hernando Sheriff’s there already. Aren’t they capable of managing a conflict like this themselves? It’s budget season- justify it by not calling in another jurisdiction, maybe?

  • Race has absolutely nothing to do with this. When you decide to yield a shotgun in front of the police, and your asjed to put it on the ground and you don’t, the outcome is obvious. Another sad scenario.

  • This was a suicide by cop. Has anyone of you ever had to live with loosing someone to suicide by cop? I sure as hell doubt it. Well I have. My fiance. It’s an insurmountable amount of pain that stays with you forever. Think what it must take to point a gun at law enforcement knowing they are going to shoot to kill. Think what that takes. Think about how scrambed a person’s mind has to be. Worse think about how painful that deep dark depression has to be. Think about the cops who shoots a mentally ill person, a physically mentally ill person life was taken. Why? Because they don’t get the help they need. Two cop’s will have flashbacks for the rest of their lifes, a family lost a love one to something that could have been prevented if we still had mental hospitals. This has nothing to do with color. Shame on those of you who are ignorant enough to sit back and use this to start.

    • You cry about black people getting executed and persecuted…. Time for retribution?… Have you ever honestly stopped, set your worn out race card down and looked at the facts? Fact black people are disproportionately killed by police compared to white people. But you can’t look at one statistic and not others. Fact more than 50% of the murders in the us (per cdc) are black men while only making up 7% of the population! And those are just the ones that were convicted. Fact the leading cause of death of black men (15-35) is murder from other black men. Not car accidents, cops or cancer. Someone they know in their own community. That’s the real issue.

      When a group of people are committing more felonies at such a staggering rate…. A corresponding statistic of negative interactions with law enforcement is to be expected. It’s like saying people who play with fire get burned more than people who don’t. Common sense.

      I has nothing to do with skin color. There is a culture in low income black communities where doing good in school is frowned upon, having a job is frowned upon. But selling drugs, carrying stolen guns, violence, and not cooperating with cops is a acceptable. Until the community aknowledges the correlation between high crime rates and bad interactions with law enforcement. It will not change.

      I feel bad for having to explain this! Criminals and cops will never have a good relationship. Stop supporting criminals and chastising cops! Have some accountability!

    • T.i. u quote t.i you are as ignorant as al sharpton i have a quote did you like it..

    • The vast majority of the people shot by police across the country are white. Your entire argument is horribly flawed. But racists typically see the world through only color. Instead of seeing the story as a person not in a sane state of mind with unknown intentions approaching the police with a deadly weapon getting shot. The racists see race first, reason or reality second or never. The irony in your post is that you are more racist than the people you are accusing of being racist.

  • Why were police there, were there other people in the house. Did she threaten neighbors. If not should have left her alone if she wasn’t a threat to anyone. She may have calmed down and been fine. So many times they make things worse.

    • Did you miss the part about the lady being crazy and holding a gun?

      Sunday, 20 August 2017, 8:44 pm
    • Because she was a harm to herself and she could have accidentally shot someone else. Ppl who commit suicide by cop can’t shoot themselves. They do it to get someon else to kill them.

      Sunday, 20 August 2017, 9:53 pm
  • Always sad to hear that someone is in such a mental state that they wave a gun around. The outcome is usually the same, no matter how hard the police try to rectify the situation. Prayers for the family and the police as well.

    Sunday, 20 August 2017, 5:35 pm
  • Really???? All you dumb ass ppl can talk about is race. Well lets focus on the REAL issue!! What happen to this woman that basically made her step out of her house and try n kill herself??? She had to know how it was gonna end. Lets think about how her family is feeling right now NOT IF SHE IS WHITE OR WHAT BLACK PPL WILL SAY. enough about race get OVER your color you cant change it only the jacksons can afford that

    • Toms first report stated she was a black woman in her fifties
      That is why the race issue is coming up

      Sunday, 20 August 2017, 6:12 pm
      • I know Tom said that in his first report. Does it really matter?

        Sunday, 20 August 2017, 10:10 pm
  • This white woman was a Veteran with PTSD she committed suicide by police. It is such a sad situation, the video that circulated shows her repeatedly pointing a rifle at the BPD, her neighbors and friends could be heard screaming before and after she was shot. I live up the street and it is very heartbreaking.

    • That’s a horrible thing to say…..I can tell that you are one person that doesn’t know what being mentally ill is. And to say, “another fantastic job by HCSO, I am sure they are not celebrating this awful incident. Think of it being a member of your Family and maybe you will chance the way you are thinking.

      Sunday, 20 August 2017, 7:00 pm
      • Joanne, unfortunately there is no reasoning with ignorance. It was so horrible to see such tragedy no matter what color the individual was. Their comments only strengthens my belief of that. God bless you for trying to bring common courtesy and I apologize for their stupidity. When evil visit’s those making these horrible comments; other people will deliver the same message to them. In the mean time pray for them, because they are definitely going to need it. You get back what you give out!

    • Well Robin, We can start by taking down all of the MLK BLVD road signs that are in every town, city, @ state. They offend me @ BTW lets get rid of the stature of MARTIN LUTHER KING. O , i forgot we cant say this. Get a life.

      Sunday, 20 August 2017, 4:59 pm
      • Can we get rid of warning labels too I find them offensive and they insult my intelligence.

        Sunday, 20 August 2017, 7:33 pm
      • Just so you know. I agree with you. We should take all that down. Did you think I was a race that you don’t like or do you just not like people period?
