72 year-old Geraldine Townsend was shot and killed while four Bartlesville police officers were taking her son Michael Livingston into custody Wednesday night, January 17, 2018. Police said they heard a popping noise.
"This all happened rather quickly," said Bartlesville Police Captain Jay Hastings.
Officers said that popping sound was Geraldine Townsend shooting at officers with a high-powered pellet gun, hitting one in the leg, and one in the face.
The officer hit in the face fired back at Townsend.
