A police officer shot and killed a woman outside of City Hall on Friday afternoon after she charged at the officer with a butcher knife, Temple Terrace Police Chief Kenneth Albano said in a news conference.
Albano said the woman, identified as 21-year-old Heba Momtaz Alazhari, charged at the uniformed police officer for unknown reasons after she had requested assistance.
A recording of the incident shows the woman sitting outside of City Hall, waiting for the officer to approach her. Once he was within about five feet of her, she can be seen pulling out the knife.
Evidence markers are seen on the ground Friday, May 29, 2020 in Temple Terrace. A police officer shot and killed a woman at City Hall Friday afternoon after she charged at the officer with a knife, Police Chief said in a news conference.
Had no alternative but to shoot, Albano said of the officer, who was not named.
The woman was shot about 1:15 p.m. and was transported to a local hospital, where she died. The officer sustained non-life-threatening injuries during the attack.
The officer has not been placed on administrative leave yet, Albano said, but it is the departments procedure to do so.
The Temple Terrace Police Department will work with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office to investigate the incident, Albano said.
The video released by police did not have sound. Albano said he was close by, however, and heard the officer shouting at the woman to "drop the knife, drop the knife multiple times.
We want it to be clear that this was unprovoked, Albano said.
Feel good story of the day. Now if we just start mowing down the protesters over the Floyd case.
Hoping for an asteroid to smash them.

Detective Columbo, please pick up the white courtesy phone.
Heba Momtaz Alazhari?

Good shoot right there. text book.
“The Tampa chapter of CAIR is not too far from there”’
Hassim Sibbly is the Director. Hassim was on the Terrorist Watch List. Wonder how Hassim got himself off of that?
Why is CAIR allowed to even operate on American soil?
Another Jihadist bites the concrete.
Her name supplies the reason.
Just poured a 12 year old Colombian Rum...care for one?
To bad the video doesn’t show her being shot, the least she could have done was provide entertainment value.
She was wearing the full blown muslimb monkey suit. Right there, that is reason enough to be suspicious.
Whenever I see muslimbs in their goth war outfit, I give them wide berth and keep my hands close to my concealed weapon.
