Las Vegas police officers accused of fatally shooting a woman last December are not being charged.

Police shot and killed Brenda Kimberling last December in the 4500 block of Aviation Street, near Nellis Boulevard and Craig Road.

They say she threatened to shoot herself, holding the barrel of a shotgun under her chin. She then appears to point the gun at officers, leading to her being shot.

Officers say they found several loaded guns in her home and that Kimberling was being treated for mental illness.
