Woman armed with meat cleaver shot by deputy, Broward sheriff says

A woman in Dania Beach who was chasing another woman with a meat cleaver ran toward deputies and they shot her Wednesday, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputies arrived to 103 N.E. Third St. after a domestic disturbance was reported to 911 at about 11:05 a.m.

The initial call described a woman chasing another woman with the large knife, and that’s what deputies found, Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony said.

“They observed the altercation occurring and provided multiple warnings to the suspect at the time to drop the weapon,” Tony said. “Unfortunately she elected to charge our deputies.”
