"We discharged one round at her. In turn, she fired several rounds back at us. We fired again at her, striking and killing her," said Baltimore County Police Chief Jim Johnson.
Activists are demanding more information after a 23-year-old Maryland mother was killed Monday in a reported exchange of gunfire with police after an hourslong standoff. That incident also left her 5-year-old son with a non-life threatening gunshot wound.
Baltimore County Police say they entered the home of Korryn Gaines to serve an arrest warrant.
