CINCINNATI

A police chief says an officer who fatally shot a woman armed with a knife outside an apartment complex in southwest Ohio faced an immediate threat to his life.

Cincinnati Police Chief James Craig told reporters Sunday that the investigation into 26-year-old Erica Collins’ death is continuing. But Craig says his initial opinion is that the shooting was justified.

Police spokeswoman Lt. Kimberly Williams says Officer Matthew Latzy was responding to a report of a family dispute when Collins approached him outside with the knife.
