Shooting at Sterling, Virginia, Costco

I've been trying to piece together what happened at the Sterling, Virginia, Costco that led two experienced Loudoun County sheriff's deputies to open fire on a knife wielding Filipino woman and kill her on May 29. The Deputies have been put on administrative leave.

As far as I can tell from the reports, the woman became upset while handing out samples and was an employee of the company that provides those workers, not an employee of Costco itself.   

I'm guessing that there could have been language problems involved.  One report said that a taser, tried first, did not stop the woman from advancing with a knife.

The Philippine Embassy has requested an investigation.
