Knife wielding woman killed after deputy-involved shooting in Hudson

Just before 3:30 p.m., on Thursday, May 2, 2024, a passerby was flagged down by 29-year-old Isabella North in the area of Denton Ave. and Dane Ln. in Hudson

North asked for help and emergency services were called. During the call, North mentioned feeling violent, being armed with a knife, and expressing intentions to harm someone.

Two PSO deputies arrived and attempted to communicate with North, who did not respond. North then brandished a 12-inch-long knife and assumed a fighting stance. Despite attempts to de-escalate, North moved toward the deputies with the knife, leading to them firing one shot each, fatally striking North within 30 seconds of their arrival.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement will investigate the incident, and the deputies are on administrative leave as per PSO’s protocol.

A deputy’s body camera footage is available below but viewer discretion is advised due to its graphic nature.
