REDMOND, Wash. (AP) — Police in Redmond, Washington, fatally shot a 39-yearold woman at an apartment complex.
KOMO reports a woman called 911 around 9:20 p.m. Sunday to report someone was trying to kill her inside her apartment.
Andrea Wolf-Buck with the Redmond Police Department said when officers arrived, the woman shouted down from a balcony that she was the one who called and indicated she might have shot someone inside.
Officers went to her apartment and didn’t find any signs of someone being shot, but then say the woman pointed a gun at officers. Wolf-Buck says the officers shot the woman multiple times and that she died despite live-saving efforts.
No officers were injured.
Wolf-Buck said no one else was in the apartment.
Three Redmond officers have been placed on paid administrative leave while the King County Sheriff’s Office investigates the shooting, according to sheriff’s office spokesperson Sgt. Ryan Abbott.
