A woman handing out pizza samples at a Virginia Costco was shot and killed by sheriff's deputies Wednesday afternoon after she began acting strangely and came at the officers with a weapon, authorities said.

A sheriff's deputy also was wounded in the leg, possibly by a ricochet. He is expected to recover.

The melee began at about 3 p.m., when store employees noticed the woman acting oddly at the Costco in Sterling, Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman said. Witnesses said she seemed upset about the pizza she was handing out.

Renee Haber, a front end manager at the store near the busy intersection of Cascades Parkway and Route 7, said the incident started when a woman involved in food preparation became agitated and began to act erratically as her shift was ending. She said the woman, who had been serving pizza earlier in the day, began saying “crazy things” and seemed concerned about the number of servings in a pizza box.

If she was black or Hispanic, this would be a "Hate Crime" charged against the Sheriff's Department.

That's the ONLY way you can assault a LEO, and NOT be held accountable.

can’t agree with you yet!

woman’s dead over a few slices of pizza!!??

in the old days, some 6’ 6”, 250 lb cop would have busted her head open with a billy club but at least she would have been alive.

I will wait for more facts. Something smells about this one!

Yet the military in Afghanistan need to be fired on twice before they can return fire.

Yeah. The woman came at officers with a knife. I guess they should have stopped it with their chests.

Yeah the cops in this nation have a very very good record for only shooting those people who deserve it. /s

Let me guess, a slice of pizza in the shape of a gun.

Weirdly there seems to be nothing between “stop” and blamblamblam in any of the police training manuals anymore.

Don’t hold your breath for an explanation. A cop who can’t disarm a woman with a knife without shooting her to death shouldn’t be on the force
As someone noted before in the good old days you had to have size and strength to be a cop
