Const. Henry Tang testified that he had to react quickly when Sylvia Klibingaitis, 52, bolted from her North York home brandishing a knife on Oct. 7, 2011.
“I knew that she was trying to kill me,” Tang said. “The ferocity of her attack and the speed that she was coming towards me, I knew I had no choice but to fire my firearm.”
Klibingaitis had called 911 herself, telling the dispatcher that she had a knife and wanted to kill her mother. Tang was the first officer to respond to the call.
