Woman shot dead during SWAT standoff


Shots were fired and a woman died after a standoff with a Sunrise SWAT team, authorities said.

Investigators have not yet determined whether the woman’s fatal gunshot wound was self-inflicted, said Officer Chris Piper, of Sunrise Police Department.

Police were called early Friday evening to the Waters Edge apartment complex, 11025 Northwest 40th St., east of Hiatus Road and north of West Oakland Park Boulevard, because of “a suicidal female threatening to harm herself,” Piper said.

“We had a standoff there for quite awhile, maybe about two hours,” he said.

A report of shots fired was followed by confirmation that the woman had died.

Authorities did not release the woman’s name.
