Prosecutors say police were called out to Pearlie Golden's home for a "situation."

Witnesses say Golden was shot several times by an officer who arrived at her home.

Police have not yet said whether Golden was armed or why the officer may have felt threatened.

"Even if she did have a gun, she is in her 90's. They could have shot in the air to scare her. Maybe she would have dropped it. I don't see her shooting anyone," said Lawanda Cook, a neighbor. "She's been around here her whole life."

The Texas Rangers and Robertson County District Attorney's Office are investigating.
