    Police were called to a house on the 2700 block of Pacheco Street shortly after 5:30 p.m. after a subject called reporting that someone was trying to kill her, according to Lt. Darrell Graham.

    The caller then told police she was suicidal, Graham said.

    Responding officers found a woman armed with a handgun. When she raised the gun toward them, she was shot by a Concord police officer, Graham said.

    She was pronounced dead at the scene.

    The shooting is being investigated by Concord police and the Contra Costa County District Attorney's Office.
