LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police shot and killed a woman overnight after investigators say she broke into a room at a short-term apartment and attacked another woman with a knife.

Deputy Las Vegas Police Chief Kirk Primas said three children, all under the age of 5, were also in the apartment during the early Wednesday incident at the Manor Suites on Las Vegas Boulevard South.

The children weren't hurt by gunfire or the knife attack, and have been taken into protective custody.

Primas says two officers saw the knife-wielding woman on a second-floor balcony, before she broke into the apartment and attacked the victim.

One officer shot the attacker several times. She died at a hospital.

Police say the woman who was attacked was treated at the scene. She declined hospitalization.
