LONG BEACH ( — Authorities say a woman accused of wielding a knife at a Long Beach police officer was taken into custody on Saturday night.

Nancy Pratt, a spokesperson for the Long Beach Police Department, says officers responded to the 1100 block of Walnut Avenue following an 11:05 p.m. call of a person with a knife.

“Moments later, an OIS [officer-involved shooting] occurred, however, the suspect was not struck by gunfire,” Pratt said.

No officers were injured.

Pratt said the suspect was taken into custody.

The investigation is ongoing.
