WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – The SBI has completed its investigation into a fatal officer involved shooting that happened in Wilmington in January.

Police said 21-year-old Grace Louise Denk was killed when officers responded to a domestic dispute between a male and female.

Responding officers found a woman seated in the driver's seat of a vehicle when they arrived. Moments later, shots were fired.

A man who said he's Denk's boyfriend called 911 to report that she had run out of the house and thought she might try to kill herself. The caller went on to explain to 911 that Denk had been drinking and that she had tried to kill herself in the past.

The investigation will be given to the district attorney who will review the findings and decide if charges should be filed.

Two officers who were involved in the shooting were placed on administrative leave.
