Ginette Denize (4714)



4/8/2009: Denize's landlord called 911 to report the smell of gas. She was five months behind on rent and in eviction proceedings. Responding officers broke down the door to find all four gas burners on and the Haitian immigrant armed with a 12-inch blade. One officer slipped, and Denize stabbed both his hands; she was fatally shot by the others. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/cops-fatally-shoot-woman-slashed-investigated-gas-leak-brooklyn-building-article-1.362065
