Police shot and killed Gaines during an hours-long standoff during which she held her five-year-old son in her arms. The child was injured in an exchange of gunfire between Gaines and the police, although it is unclear whose bullets struck him. Police said they went into Gaines’ apartment after getting a key from her landlord while trying to serve outstanding warrants. During the standoff, police shot at Gaines before she fired back, according to police. Officers then opened fire again, striking Gaines fatally.
