ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. -- A developing story out of St. Johns County, police shoot and kill a woman after an altercation.

A report from the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office said it happened Saturday night after 10:30 p.m. at a residence in the 2900 block of County Road 214.

The report states deputies responded to a home where the initial call involved an armed man threatening to harm himself. When deputies arrived on scene, they found a woman instead, who came to the door with a shotgun.

Deputies say the woman,  Andrea Sheldon, 46, walked outside with the gun.

The report also said Sheldon pointed the shotgun at a deputy in the yard after refusing calls to drop her weapon.

The St. Johns County Sheriff Office said deputies were forced to shoot, killing her. CPR attempts were made.

However, deputies could not revive the woman.

Deputies found the armed man in a vehicle on a road near the home. He surrendered.

The report explains there may have been a domestic dispute between the women in the house and the man.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is now investigating the shooting. The deputies involved have been put on administrative leave, a routine procedure after a shooting.

The deputies involved are: Sgt. Glen Lappe, 22 years with the SJSO, Deputy Michael Williams, 12 years with the SJSO, Deputy Scott Stokes, 9 years with the SJSO, and Deputy Cameron Coward, 8 years with the SJSO.

Kevin Kelshaw, a spokesman for the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office, said this is the first police involved shooting for all four deputies.
