Florida Woman Fatally Shot By Deputies Was a U.S. Army Veteran

A woman who authorities say was fatally shot by sheriff’s deputies in Central Florida this week after a confrontation with a neighbor, was a veteran of the U.S. Army.

Orange County Sheriff John Mina says his deputies shot Tracy Drowne on Tuesday afternoon, when she pointed a gun at them.

They were investigating a battery call involving an incident with her neighbor.

The unidentified man told investigators Drowne hit him during an argument about his teenage daughter.

Drowne’s ex-husband told the Orlando Sentinel that she was struggling recently. Mina adds that the two deputies are on leave pending an investigation.
