The GBI has been called to investigate an officer-involved shooting after a domestic incident in Oconee County on Monday, according to the local sheriff’s office.

The incident happened about 10:15 a.m. at a home on Creekview Court off White Oak Drive, the sheriff’s office posted on Facebook.

When they arrived, deputies said a woman at the scene had a knife and a blow torch. The post said deputies used a Taser on her before she charged at them with the knife. The woman, whose identity was not released, was shot by deputies and died at the scene, the sheriff’s office said.

No deputies were injured. A man who was involved in the domestic dispute suffered minor injuries, the post said.

This is the 72nd such investigation the GBI has been requested to investigate this year.
