They were called to a report of a woman armed with a gun? Makes no sense, that's not illegal. People have a right to bear arms. 2nd amendment, you should check it out sometime. And as for the Winchester Police, they are nothing but law breaking thugs with badges!

She threatened to shoot her son in law and also fired on police officers. That is why she got shot. Maybe you should get your facts straight.

First off Joe, what does what her EX husband and what he does have to do with anything?? Second the papers don't have everything right...she didn't shoot at any one. She was actually trying to commit suicide when a family member saw her with the gun and called the police...who didn't even give her a chance to come out, they just barreled in and started shooting, completely ignoring their own procedures.

You are WRONG. She shot at the cops first. And she threatened the cops. They did not "barrel in" on her. Of course, she AND her friends are going to put a spin on the truth to make her sound better. She deserves to be in jail PERIOD. Funny thing is...who will YOU call the next time you are in trouble?? Hmmmmm, I bet it's 911. The cops!!!

It's strange that nothing was ever released. Normally, an officer would be recognized for such a brave act.

Winchester Sun says one of our highly trained officers heard a gun shot and the lady ends up shot in her own home and yes they forced the door open....... if your waiting for the cops to show up and save you, good luck, you might be the one shot!

Truth be told WPD prolly shot her just to shoot her. I don't trust the Winchester Police, never have and never will, they r outlaws with badges. When they show up they don't show up to serve and protect people's rights, they show up and run that smart mouth and then when you get smart back your being disorderly. And for all you people that think I'm prolly a law breaker, I'm not, don't have a record, I'm a law abiding citizen who works everyday and pays taxes and I have a right to my opinion.

And how exactly do you know that she threatened or shot at anyone or what she did?? Where you there? Did you talk to her? Or you sleeping with the one who shot her? You seem AWFULLY emotional about something that has NOTHING to do with you....
