Patricia Thompson (3127)

3/3/2006: Just after midnight police were called to a domestic dispute involving Thompson, who had had 15 police contacts since the 1990s for mental health issues. After making incoherent statements she went for a knife in the kitchen drawer and lunged at the two officers, who fatally shot her. Thompson's husband and daughter supported the police version of events.
