"The mother of the woman killed during a standoff with Baltimore County police said her daughter ignored pleas from her boyfriend to surrender.
Rhonda Dormeus said she was on a Facebook call Monday with her daughter, Korryn Gaines, 23, as Gaines sat with her 5-year-old son on the floor of her Randallstown apartment with a shotgun in her hands.
"I could hear her boyfriend telling her it wasn't worth it, to just come on out," said Dormeus, 49.
"At that time the phone went dead," she said.
An hours-long standoff ensued, ending when Gaines was killed by police after she pointed her gun at officers and threatened to kill them, authorities said. Police said an officer fired one shot and missed, prompting Gaines to fire back twice, missing the officers. Police then shot three more times, killing Gaines, police said."http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/crime/bs-md-korryn-gaines-tuesday-20160802-story.html

Gaines placed herself and minor children in danger during the March 2016 traffic stop as well as, during the standoff.
