ANKENY, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation is probing an Ankeny officer's fatal shooting of an armed woman.

Ankeny police say officers were sent to a home around 5:15 p.m. Saturday after receiving a report about a suicidal woman. Police say the officers found a woman armed with a semi-automatic weapon. Police say the woman was shot when she refused to drop the weapon and pointed it at an officer.

She was taken to Mercy Medical Center-Des Moines, where she died. She's been identified as 59-year-old Marilyn Boyd.

The officer's name and other details about the shooting haven't been released.
