The caller then hung up before providing information on their location. Officers headed to the neighborhood where the call originated from and began canvassing the area.

During the search, authorities saw a woman running from the home with a gun in her hand.

"There were four officers, uniformed officers, gave her several opportunities to drop the gun, gave her advisement that they were the police drop the gun...she does not and she advances on the officers with the gun pointed and an officer-involved shooting took place," SBPD Lt. Rich Lawhead said.
