Other police swarmed to the scene, but the incident had already turened fatal.
Interstate 394 was the site of a shooting incident this afternoon that left an armed woman dead, though details of what led to her shooting are not yet public.

Just after 1:00 p.m., a Golden Valley cop pulled over a woman near the Hopkins Crossroads on I-394 near the Hopkins Crossroad. The woman, who was in possession of a handgun, was shot and killed by the officer who'd pulled her over.

The Golden Valley Police Department has posted a statement to its website offering a bare-bone description of the event. Hennpin County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Lisa Kiava said other details of the event, like the nature of the initial stop, and whether the woman brandished or pointed her gun at the officer, are not available at this time.

Other police cars swarmed to the scene, as several news stations caught in their helicopter coverage, but the action was already over, according to the police statement.

The Golden Valley Police description is posted below, in full:

At approximately 1:03 pm Sept 22, the police officer attempted to stop a vehicle on westbound I-394 near Hwy 169. The driver of the vehicle eventually pulled over to the side of I-394 near Hopkins Crossroad. The lone occupant of the vehicle, an adult female, was in possession of a handgun and was subsequently fatally shot by the officer. The officer did not sustain any injuries.

The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office will be investigating this incident. As standard procedure, the Golden Valley officer involved will be placed on temporary administrative leave.

GV Police are inda nuts. A store next to mine got robbed earlier tonight, and they had probably 15 officers running around the Golden Valley Shopping Center, guns drawn, including assault rifles while public walked around freely. Honestly, I'm a lot more afraid of Police running around with guns drawn like that than someone holding up my store.

I'd love to see all of you waggle your guns around a police officer and see what happens, especially after what technically was a car chase.  You think OJ would be here today if he didn't just get on the ground. Shoo'

I'm betting the cop shot a permit-holding citizen.  This entire incident has not been revealed to us, which tells me the cops are doing a coverup.  I'm unimpressed by the journalistic jargon I've read; i.e., "I-394 was closed for a 'police incident'", "Golden Valley police shot an 'armed woman'..."etc.

The cop fucked up.  It's that simple.  Fire the bastard!

All of the facts are not in yet but, the circumstances of this incident are disturbing from what we do know. This was a fifty eight year old woman who from all evidence was not a drug user and has no record. She was shoot multiples times at point blank range by this officer and the Department is providing very few if any circumstances regarding this case to date.

We as citizens of this country have constitutional rights which include the right to carry arms. This by the way is also recognized through state law and a permit system now in place for many years.

At any rate, I have always maintained that these incidents should be investigated by a citizen review board comprised of trained law enforcement investigators who would report directly to a county attorney and or the Attorney Generals Office and if needed a grand jury. They should not be investagated by neighboring law enforcement agencies or the BCA.

Your logic would be correct. However, we don't know if this supposed weapon was in any brandished. Not even the G.V. police department have been in any way clear about this.

For that matter they have not been clear about much of anything.

30 sec car chase, 60 mph to go 1/2 mile. Do the math.
