"It was almost like two very rapid fire bursts, very loud," Connolly said. "They were clearly coming from the direction. That's when we saw people fleeing, and we realized this was no fireworks. It sounds liked the first volley of a 21-gun salute."

According to the news the "woman was shot and killed". Hope we find out what prompted her actions.

I read about this and saw it on the news but cant understand if she was unarmed why they killed her Would have thought shooting the tyres would have been enough Maybe she was having problems because of the shutdown maybe we will never know
