NOPD: woman fires weapon at officers; commits suicide

New Orleans, La. - The NOPD is investigating a Monday morning shooting that ended with a woman committing suicide. 

Police say it all started around 8am in the 2800 block of Laurel Street. A woman threatening to kill herself fired a weapon at police officers who tried to help her.

The 38 year-old woman was in the driveway of a home when she grabbed a gun from a van and fired at least one shot at the officers.

One NOPD officer did fire one shot back at the woman, but investigators do not believe that bullet hit the woman.

The woman, who has not been identified, shot herself once in the head.

An autopsy will be performed.
