A New York police sergeant responding to a call about an “emotionally disturbed person” fatally shot a 66-year-old woman wielding a baseball bat, authorities said.
Police said they were investigating the shooting, including why the officer who responded in the Bronx on Tuesday night fired his gun rather than a Taser.
