(AP) — Investigators found no weapon inside a vehicle driven by a Missouri woman who was shot and killed by a sheriff’s deputy over the weekend, authorities said Tuesday.
Hannah Fizer, 25, died Saturday night after being shot by a Pettis County deputy following a traffic stop.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol, which is investigating the shooting, initially said Fizer was shot after she said she had a gun and threatened to shoot the deputy.
Investigators who searched her car did not find a weapon, patrol spokesman Bill Lowe said Tuesday.
He said no new information was available to explain why the situation escalated into a shooting.
No one else was injured during the confrontation.
