LANCASTER, N.C. -- investigators revealed Friday what happened in the moments before local deputies shot and killed a driver last month.
Woman threatened 'suicide by cop' to Lancaster deputies
A new report released today by the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office says 55-year-old Ingrid Mayer was pulled over for driving erratically on Parkman Avenue.
Deputies caught up to Mayer on Grace Avenue and conducted a traffic stop. They say she appeared to be driving under the influence.
As officers checked the status of her license, Mayor reportedly told deputies, This is about to be a suicide by cop.
She put her car in reverse, and then slammed into a patrol car with an officer inside.
Police say Mayer then headed toward another deputy who pulled his gun, firing twice.
Mayer crashed into a ditch and died.
The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division is still investigating.
The sheriff s office conducted its own internal investigation, which determined the deputies acted appropriately.
