KENNEBUNK, Maine — The Maine Medical Examiner’s office says a Kennebunk woman shot to death by a police officer was hit multiple times.

Katherine Paulson, 39, was killed Sunday.

Kennebunk police say Paulson was shot by Officer Joshua Morneau after she had confronted him with some type of weapon when he and another officer had been called to her home.

The Maine Attorney General’s office is investigating the shooting to determine whether it was justified.

Kennebunk police Lt. Anthony Bean Burpee tells the Portland Press Herald the department plans to do its own investigation as well. printed on August 18, 2017
