Officers were able to quickly locate Naji in the parking lot of the complex. As seen in a video released three days after the shooting, police had to take cover behind a parked car as they ordered Naji to drop her gun.
“She’s got a rifle,” one officer says while the other repeatedly yells, “Drop the gun! Drop the gun! Ma’am, drop the gun!”
Police slowly made their way toward Naji as the rifle lay a few feet away from her. She was handcuffed within three minutes of police locating her.
“We are extremely proud of the professionalism exhibited by both of these officers. They acted quickly and worked together and we believe their actions were vital in safely apprehending this armed suspect,” a news release said.
