An investigation is underway after Chicago police killed a woman after they say she lunged at them with a knife.

It began about 6:40 Thursday night near 109th and South Eberhart. Police responded to a domestic-related call.

They were told a woman was armed with a knife and was possibly under the influence of drugs.

Officers say as they entered the apartment, 60-year old Angelique Styles refused orders to put down the knife.

They opened fire when they say she lunged at them. The woman was killed. No one else was hurt.
