BC’s police watchdog is investigating after North Vancouver Mounties shot and killed a woman Saturday night (November 12) in a firearm and a break-in phone call.

Police were called to the townhouse complex in the 3700 block of Humber Square at about 7:30 p.m., where a woman reportedly threatened to injure someone with a weapon, the B.C. Independent Investigations Office said. The same woman is also believed to have tried to break into a nearby house.
