AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A woman who was shot by a trooper after a 19-hour standoff in Austintown has died.
Multiple sources have confirmed that Imonie Hackett, 31, passed away.
Hackett was hospitalized after the shooting. At this time, it’s unclear if her death was a result of the shooting.

Officers evacuated the building, but Hackett’s 9-year-old son was in the apartment with her.
Nearly 20 hours later, the standoff ended with someone from the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s SWAT team shooting Hackett.
