Police say 60-year-old Angelique Styles was "belligerent" when they came to her Roseland home in the 10900 block of South Eberhart Avenue on a domestic disturbance call around 6:40 p.m., CBS Chicago reports.

Styles' brother called 911 after his sister began "tearing the house apart" and picked up a knife, according to NBC Chicago.

Styles reportedly emerged from a bedroom when police arrived and refused to put down her weapon, DNAinfo Chicago reports. A police spokesman said Styles then lunged at officers "in a threatening manner," prompting one cop to fire in self-defense.

The Associated Press reports the woman may have been on drugs at the time of the attack.
