BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Ada County Coroner’s Office has identified the woman shot and killed by Nampa police officers last week as 51-year-old Dawn Simpson.

The Idaho Statesman reports Simpson died Friday from a gunshot wound at a Boise hospital.

The Nampa Police Department said the shooting happened earlier that day after officers responded to a trespassing report and found Simpson parked in a driveway.

Officers said they told Simpson to get out of the car, but she instead drove away, hitting a patrol car.

The officers confronted her a few blocks away, and said they returned fire after she shot at them.

The shooting is under investigation.
