“Two white Seattle police officers on Sunday fatally shot a 30-year-old black mother who had called them to investigate a burglary and whose family said had deteriorating mental health.
Both Seattle Police Department officers opened fire on the woman, named by family as Charleena Lyles, inside the apartment building after they said she confronted them brandishing a knife, police said. She died at the scene.
There were several children inside the apartment during Sunday’s incident, though they were uninjured, police said.
“There is no reason for her to be shot in front of her babies,” Monika Williams, the sister of the slain woman, told reporters outside the apartment building. “She had mental health issues that nobody is trying to address.”
The incident comes four days after Lyles was released from King County Jail following her arrest on June 5 for threatening police officers with large kitchen scissors inside her small and cluttered apartment, according to a police incident report filed in Seattle Municipal Court.”
