Pamela Dale Kirk (7798)

4/28/2013: Two officers - a field training officer and a trainee - were dispatched after a person called to say she was concerned about a neighbor. After knocking on the front door and getting no response, the uniformed police officer went to the rear of the home and knocked on the back door. According to the report, a woman standing inside the home near the back door raised a curtain on a large adjacent window and pointed a silver Smith & Wesson .38 Special revolver at the officer. The officer then fired three times through the window, killing her.
