THE BRONX - A woman died after she was shot by police officers on Pugsley Avenue in Castle Hill Tuesday night, according to the NYPD.

Police say she was taken to Jacobi Medical Center in critical condition, but died from her injuries.

It happened at 6:10 p.m. in the woman's Pugsley Avenue apartment.

Police say neighbors called about a woman acting irrationally. When officers got there, they say the woman was in her apartment armed with scissors, picked up a bat and attempted to swing at them.

A uniformed officer shot the 66-year-old woman twice in the stomach, according to authorities.

Police say they have responded to the apartment before for other incidents. They say officers have had to restrain the woman before, and a neighbor says she once witnessed the woman taken away in a straitjacket.
