The Omaha woman injured in a police involved shooting Tuesday has died. She is identified as Tiffany Terry and she passed away at Nebraska Medicine Hospital Thursday evening.
Police were dispatched to an assault in progress Tuesday afternoon to a home at 50th and Walnut Street in the midtown area. A man at that address told police he and his 18 year old daughter were attacked by the girl’s mother identified as Terry.
Omaha Police Officer Emilio Luna knocked on the door of a house they were told Terry entered. Terry opened and rushed out the doorway screaming expletives at Officer Luna. She was also armed with several knives and threatened the officer who jumped off the deck to avoid the attack. Other officers at the scene ordered Terry to drop the knife at least eight times without doing so. Officer Luna and Officer Matthew Digilio fired several shots hitting Terry. She was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
Officer’s Digilio and Luna are on administrative leave pending an internal and grand jury investigation.
