ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. (AP) _ A 61-year-old St. Louis County woman is dead after firing shots at police officers who entered her home after she shot a neighbor three times.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Sheilah Huck had been acting irrationally outside her home Saturday before shooting the other woman who was loading her two children into a car.

Police haven’t identified the 35-year-old neighbor, who is expected to survive.

St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar says members of a tactical operations unit entered Huck’s home at 4:20 p.m. after she didn’t respond to officers. He says Huck fired three rounds at police with a handgun from 8 to 10 feet away, and two of the officers returned fire and killed her.
