VIDEO: Calif. Woman Shot After Pointing Replica Gun at Police

Long Beach, Calif., police shot a reportedly mentally ill woman Saturday after she brandished what appeared to be a handgun in their direction. The "gun" was later determined to be a replica.

A mental evaluation team pleaded with Adeline Arroyo, 32, to drop the weapon for reportedly an hour before shots were fired.

Arroyo allegedly refused and continued to walk toward them.

CBSLA captured video that shows Arroyo holding what appears to be a gun and pointing its barrel toward officers as the officers open fire.

Officials say Arroyo was shot multiple times.

Hey [email protected]%hole it wasn't suicide by cop. She is still alive! Sorry to spoil your "Happy Holidays". Whenever I wonder why everyone hates cops all I have to do is come here(and Policeone) and read the comments left by retards like you and the rest of you self aggrandizing types and it all comes back to me.

Once again lenny from mice and men shows his ignorance. lenny you are a complete tool. I have other names for you, but I will refrain. You clearly haven't a clue as to what is going on out here. You should try leaving your mommys and daddy's basement and get out some, who knows you might meet a girl. But hold off on the intimacy part of that. That's all we need is another lenny walking around this world.

According to the worthless ghetto blks protesting in Ferguson and all over, this shooting would be racist, bad and the officers should have walked up and hugged her. Hahaha Some people are stupid enough to point guns at police. Not a healthy thing to do.
