A 93-year-old woman wielding a revolver was shot to death by police in the rural Texas town of Hearne, authorities said.
Neighbors said Pearlie Golden was a sweet woman known to most people of this predominantly black community as "Miss Sully."
The nonagenarian was shot five times, several witnesses told KBTX-TV.
The fatal confrontation began when Golden’s nephew called cops after he took the elderly woman’s car keys because she no longer has a driver’s license.
She grabbed a gun and threatened her nephew, KBTX-TV reported. When cops arrived around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Golden was outside the home waving the gun around.
Officer Stephen Stem asked the 93-year-old to “put down the weapon and then ultimately fired his own sidearm, wounding Miss Golden” who later died at a local hospital
Stem has previously shot and killed a suspect, the news station reported. Just six months after he started with the department, Stem shot and killed Tederalle Satchell, 28, who reportedly was shooting a gun from his car in an apartment complex parking lot.
A grand jury cleared the then-rookie officer of wrongdoing. He’s been on the job less than two years.
