A woman who was allegedly attempting to commit suicide Monday night was shot and killed by law enforcement officers when she supposedly brandished a weapon. Both La Habra Police and Orange County Sheriff's responded to a 911 call regarding the incident around 10 p.m. Investigators from the District Attorney's Office are trying to establish what triggered the shooting and reportedly don't even know which police force killed the unidentified woman.
