” A New Hampshire grandmother was shot and killed by state police Monday after leading troopers on a high-speed car chase, according to NBC affiliate WHDH in Boston.

Wendy Lawrence, 45, of Canterbury, N.H., was struck by gunfire four times by a state trooper, officials with the state attorney general’s office said. Authorities determined the cause of death was a single gunshot to the chest.

Authorities said a New Hampshire State Police trooper stopped a Chevrolet Monte Carlo that was being operated “erratically” on a southbound highway at roughly 6:30 p.m. Monday, according to a statement from Jeffery A. Strelzin, the senior assistant state attorney general.”
