FLORIDA -- The sister of a known terrorist has lunged at a police officer with a knife and the cop used his firearm to stop her. In what appears to be a really convincing video to allow this police to do so, it's clear that she stood up and went right after the guy.

This officer and another were involved, but the part with the shooting cannot be seen as they moved out of the view of the camera that was recording.

The confrontation then moves out of view of the camera. That's when the officer shot the woman, later identified as 22-year-old Heba Momtaz Al-Azhari.

Al-Azhari later died at the hospital.

"It's a very traumatic thing for an officer to pull his weapon and much less take a life," said Temple Terrace Police Chief Kenneth Albano while speaking about the incident.

Albano said the officer repeatedly told Al-Azhari to drop the knife. He yelled the commands so loudly that Albano said he could hear them from his third-floor office.

Spectrum Bay News 9 has confirmed that Al-Azhari is the sister of a man accused of terrorism.

A family spokesperson told Spectrum Bay News 9 she was upset over her brother's arrest earlier this week. The spokesperson said his name is Muhammed Momtaz Al-Azhari.

Twenty-three-year-old Muhammed Momtaz Al-Azhari is accused of trying to buy guns illegally and planning an attack somewhere in Tampa.

His criminal history includes terrorism charges in Saudi Arabia.
