Tulsa Police said a woman is in the hospital after an officer-involved shooting overnight at an apartment complex near I-44 and Yale.

Tulsa Police said they were called to the Charleston Heights Apartments around midnight Friday over reports of a upset woman who had a knife.

Police said when they arrived they found a woman at the complex who was upset.

Officers said they tried to talk with her, but she pulled out a knife and refused to put it down. Police said they asked her at least four times to put the knife down.

"She decided to lunge at the officers with the knife, taking aggressive steps toward the officer," said Officer Danny Bean, TPD. 

Bean said one officer deployed a taser, and an officer with his gun out fired a shot, striking her in the chest.

She's now in the hospital and police said she is expected to be OK.

The woman's name has not been released, nor has the name of the officer involved in this shooting.
