St. Cloud police Wednesday morning shot and killed an armed woman at 418 Alabama Ave., in what began as a domestic dispute between the woman and her female roommate.

According to St. Cloud Police, officers were called out to 431 Tennessee Ave. around 9:24 a.m. over the domestic dispute that began when Elba Luz Cartagena, 25, was asked to move out by her roommate, police officers said. Before officers arrived, Cartagena had fired off a gun in the home.

The roommate went outside and when police arrived, Cartagena fled on foot. When police caught up to her on Alabama Avenue, she raised the firearm at the officers, St. Cloud Police Chief Pete Gauntlett said.

“Our two officers repeatedly challenged her to drop the handgun,” Gauntlett said

Helps to read the article. If cops tell you to drop a gun do it if you don't you will be shot.
