HEARNE – A 93-year-old woman is shot and killed by a police officer at her home in Hearne.
Pearlie Golden, known in the neighborhood as Ms. Sully, was pronounced dead Tuesday night at St. Joseph Hospital. The elderly woman was rushed there after being shot by a male officer at her house on Karney Street. Multiple witnesses tell us she was shot at least five times.
Hearne police are not ready to say whether Golden was armed or why the officer felt threatened.
“All I know is that they were called out here,” said Robertson County District Attorney Coty Siegert. “They were dispatched out here to address the situation. Again, I’m not sure exactly what that situation was, but it was not a random encounter.”
