    Police Shoot California Woman 18 Times

    Two San Pablo police officers fired a total of 18 rounds at a woman who they say threatened her husband with a butcher knife Christmas Day, the department disclosed Friday.

    The shooting killed 57-year-old Rosalyne McHenry and also wounded her husband, 51-year-old Harry McHenry.

    "He was struck once through the arm," San Pablo police Cmdr. Walt Schuld said. "He will get out of the hospital (today)."

    The officers went to the McHenry home on the 2500 block of Manchester Drive at 9:53 p.m. after Rosalyne McHenry phoned 911 to report her husband abusing her, police said.

    The officers, one on the force four years the other two years, separated the couple. After police spoke to them, both agreed to leave the house and part company, Schuld said; during the discussion, police handcuffed Harry McHenry because he made a flinching motion toward his wife.

    The department did not release the officers' names Friday.

    Rosalyne McHenry left the house after speaking to police and the officer locked the door behind her, police said. Both officers took her husband upstairs because he said he needed cash from his safe, Schuld said.

    Police heard Rosalyne McHenry enter the house again while they were upstairs. They called down for her to leave. One of the officers descended the stairs and saw her holding a butcher knife.

    "He raised his hands in a defensive posture and yelled, 'knife!'" Schuld said. "She ran past him as he was reaching for his gun."

    Rosalyne McHenry ran up the stairs with the knife upraised, Schuld said; both the officer still upstairs and Harry McHenry called for her to drop it, and Harry McHenry moved forward.

    When she was about six feet away, Schuld said, both officers began shooting. Each fired nine rounds. Rosalyne McHenry died at the scene.

    "Officers are trained to fire multiple times," Schuld said.

    Neither officer was hurt. The San Pablo Police Department placed both on paid leave while it conducts an internal investigation, a standard practice in officer-involved shooting cases.

    sounds like overpenetration if they fired 9 times each and she was hit 18 times.

    Three cops firing at once, she probably didn't have time to fall.

    I think the phrase "lit up like a christmas tree" would be in poor taste...

    I doubt that's true if she's hell-bent on killing her husband.

    21 feet is distance between pulling weapon and average person reaching you.

    Edit: I forgot I was in WMD :o

    i hate how peeps get shitty about multiple rounds being fired, its not like the 2 cops have time to play rock, paper, scissors to see who gets to shoot... or its not like the cops can have the thought "well my partner will take care of this one", cause then its possible no one will shoot...

    Sounds like they almost came up with a good alibi, this will probably not be justified. You never can tell anymore.

    He may of gotten in the line of fire didn't say where the husband was standing relative to everyone. They still shouldn't of shot him but I'll take bullet in the arm over a butcher knife in the chest anyday.

    I think that him being shot was a case of an over penetration shot as someone else said.

    If they each shot 9 shots and she was hit 18 times then one of the bullets that hit her also hit the husband. So it either went through him first and into her, or more likely was a shot through her and into his arm.

    It also sounded like there was one cop in front and one behind her since she passed one on the steps. So its likely that officer's shot penetrated her and hit the husband on the other side.
