MESA, AZ — Mesa officers were involved in a shooting Wednesday night that left an armed woman injured.

Police say they were called to a home near Brown and Power roads around 9:30 p.m. after a neighbor reported a woman was armed and threatening suicide. Another call was made shortly after saying a shot had been fired.

When officers arrived, another neighbor was seen with the woman in front of a home. Officers made multiple commands for the woman to drop her weapons and she would not comply.

Officers fired at the woman, causing non-life-threatening injuries.

The incident is still under investigation.
