Investigators find no weapon in car of woman shot by deputy

Authorities say investigators found no weapon in the car of a Missouri woman who was shot and killed by a sheriff’s deputy.

Hannah Fizer died Saturday night after being shot by a Pettis County deputy following a traffic stop.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol initially said Fizer told the deputy she had a gun and threatened to shoot him.

Patrol spokesman Bill Lowe said Tuesday that investigators who searched the car did not find a weapon.

The deputy, whose name has not been released, is on paid administrative leave.
