Family says 83-year-old woman killed in Altavista officer-involved shooting – Page 2 – wdbj7.com

ALTAVISTA, Va.—

Family members tell WDBJ7 that Delma Towler called police because she thought someone was breaking into her home on 10th Street.

Relatives say the 83-year-old was wandering behind her house. WDBJ7 has learned Delma may have fired a gunshot through her back door.

She then left her house and tried to walk through her backyard to the home of her sister who, lives two doors away.

Delma got all the way to her sister’s back porch and that’s when family members say she was shot by a police officer.
