Family recalls loving nature of Seattle mom killed by police

Family recalls loving nature of Seattle mom killed by police

Then below the fold on the same page, "Fatal shooting by Seattle police prompts community outrage".

While the effort likely meant to make the city's officers more available to the Seattle residents, it backfired when its public affairs director Sgt. Sean Whitcomb used Twitch to address questions surrounding the death of Lyles, a pregnant woman shot and killed by officers in her home after reporting a burglary. "At some point, we have to do police reform".

First they see "Questions and anger after mother killed by police" on page one about the shooting by police of Charleena Lyles. Seattle officials agreed to an independent monitor and federal court oversight of the city's police department after a Justice investigation found Seattle officers routinely used excessive force.

The officers responded to the apartment after Lyles reported a burglary. But it suddenly escalated with the officers saying "get back" repeatedly.

The mother of four said in the 911 call that she had gone out and come home to find someone had broken in.

Police say 34-year-old Steven McNew and 32-year-old Jason Anderson were the officers who shot Charleena Lyles on Sunday.

Charles Lyles said his daughter liked to take her children to carnivals and do fun things with them.

Oil hits six-week low as OPEC fails to curb oversupply
Crude futures fell sharply Wednesday on higher stockpiles in the USA and other rich nations despite the OPEC production deal. Libya and Nigeria are exempt from the OPEC-led production deal to ensure oil revenue flows to national security efforts.

Seattle police requires that all officers, once trained and certified, to use Tasers and carry them on their holsters during their shifts.

Anderson said Lyles advanced from around a counter into the kitchen toward McNew, telling investigators that 'at that moment I was in, in fear that she was gonna try and kill my partner, um, 'cause she was going after him, ' according to the transcript.

Her four children were in the apartment at the time of the shooting. Shots were heard in the audio.

That doesn't mean the officers shouldn't have entered Lyles' apartment to investigate the burglary, he said.

Neither officer had a stun gun, but they did have other options, either a baton or pepper spray. "We expect safety. It was their responsibility to protect her and they didn't", James Bible, an attorney representing family members of Lyles, told CNN affiliate KIRO.

McNew and Anderson are now on paid administrative leave while the shooting is under investigation.
