The Highway Patrol’s division of Drug and Crime Control is now investigating an officer-involved shooting that claimed the life of a woman in Hickory County.

Sheriff Greg Burke indicated that deputies responded to a report of a domestic dispute on Short Lane in Hermitage around 9AM on Wednesday.

Investigators say the women, armed with a knife, had attacked a resident of the property.

A deputy fired his weapon striking the 42-year-old woman, who was fatally injured and then pronounced dead at the scene.

In addition to the Highway Patrol, the Hickory Country Prosecuting Attorney is also investigating the case.
