“A deadly weekend encounter between two white Seattle policemen and a black woman whom relatives described as mentally ill turned abruptly violent, with the officers shouting at the woman to “get back” before opening fire, an audio recording of the incident revealed on Monday.
The recording, captured by microphones linked wirelessly to the dashboard video system in the officers’ patrol car, was publicly released in the interest of maintaining “transparency” in the investigation of Sunday’s shooting, the Seattle Police Department said.
Much about the circumstances of the shooting remain unclear.
What the recording does not show, according to official police accounts, is that the woman brandished a knife at the two officers before they responded with lethal force. Both officers have been placed on paid administrative leave, police said.”
