(KCEN)   The city of Hearne, Texas is reeling after a police officer shot and killed a 93-year-old woman.

Neighbors now wonder what could have happened that caused the well-known woman to be gunned down last night outside her home.

"She was a nice elderly lady," said Andrew Washington, who lives just a few houses down from where the shooting happened. "She didn't bother nobody."

Washington has lived in Hearne for 25 years; 93-year-old Pearlie Golden was part of his wedding.

Now the elderly woman is gone, shot and killed by a Hearne police officer.
