Nevada County Sheriff's Office received a 9-1 call from a concerned citizen after she saw a mother and two young children walking on Alta Sierra Drive under suspicious circumstances.
Deputies responded to the area and located the 33-year-old women and her children. As they attempted to speak with her, she immediately became upset and produced a knife.
Efforts to de-escalate the situation by the Deputies were not successful. Ultimately, the women charged at a Deputy while holding the knife and screaming, "I'm Going To Kill You". At that point, a second Deputy discharged his service weapon.
This is always a tragic situation, made worse by the fact that children were present. However, Officers did their job to ensure the community remained safe. Below is the dash cam footage of the incident, though be warned that it contains graphic content.
