Cops kill Costco pizza woman
Cops shot and killed Virginia Costco pizza employee, Mhai Scott, after she advanced towards them while holding a knife. Witnesses said Scott began speaking to herself and acting erratically, prompting supervisors to call the police.
Mhai Scott, a 38-year-old mother of two, was a contractor for Club Demonstration Services and was passing out pizza samples when she grabbed a knife and began threatening store supervisors.
Two deputy sheriffs responded to the call. When they got to the Costco warehouse in Sterling, VA, they attempted to subdue Scott with a stun gun. Unfortunately, the gun was infective, and Scott continued advancing towards the two sheriffs.
According to witnesses, five to six shots were fired at Scott, which killed her and injured one of the officers in the leg. The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is reviewing security footage and continuing with their investigation.
