Police identify woman shot, killed in Dinuba officer-involved shooting

DINUBA, Calif. (KFSN) -- The Dinuba Police Department has identified the woman who died after an officer-involved shooting Monday afternoon as 43-year-old Jennifer Taylor.

Two officers responded to a call of an irate woman just after 1 p.m. near Millard Way and Crawford Avenue.

Police said the officers were able to calm the woman down and get her inside her home, but she came back outside and fired a gun.

Detectives said Taylor shot another round toward the officers, and when they ordered her to drop the weapon, she refused.
