Officers in Seattle fatal shooting had crisis training

Sign this Care2 petition to demand that the officers who shot Charleena Lyles are charged with murder. He urged his partner to use a stun gun but that officer responded: "I don't have a Taser".

After repeatedly yelling, "Get back", shots rang out.

According to a four-minute audio recording of the black woman's encounter with the cops, the officers had even briefly discussed Lyles' mental issues before reaching her home.

"There's nothing that she wouldn't have done for her kids".

CNN affiliate KIRO reported that the officers didn't have a Taser. Seattle police are i.

Photos of Lyles and her children were pinned on black plastic chairs and placards that read Black Lives Matter were posted outside her building.

But a collaboration between the department and Eastern Washington University showed black and Native American people are disproportionately stopped by police, and are more likely to have force used against them.

He said family members are heartbroken and dedicated to finding justice. I never thought that it would be like this.

In the video, police said you can hear the officers talking about this history of the residence and their concerns, then they talk to the caller before their confrontation with the woman.

Two officers were deployed to the apartment of Lyles as she has had run-ins with the police.

Seattle Municipal Court records show that Lyles was arrested June 5 and booked into King County Jail. That police report described Lyles as having "armed herself with a pair of extra long metal shears" and had been "threatening the officers".

She was released from jail on June 14 on the condition that she check-in twice a week with a case manager and possess no weapons.

Authorities say Lyles confronted the officers with two kitchen knives.

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

Such training has been a hard-fought victory for mental health advocates and racial justice groups, both of whom are working for safer outcomes in police encounters.

"Everything's normal, the officers are acting appropriately, taking her info", Whitcomb said.

Whitcomb said the department is "grieving for her children and her family" and struggling with the notion that earlier mental health or other support for Lyles, a pregnant mother of four who had been a victim of domestic violence, might have prevented what happened.

Initially, the tone is calm. The fact that the officers knew a lot about Lyles led to criticisms on how they handled the situation. She says she has no idea. Seconds later, the officers fired multiple shots. Castile had a concealed carry permit and was fatally shot after telling Yanez he had a gun in the auto, then reaching for his driver's license.

Officers may be able to take their time to persuade a suspect who's standing in the middle of an intersection with no one nearby to drop a knife, but that might be different in cramped quarters or with children nearby, she said.

"It's a very traumatic event, absolutely", he said.

Family members spoke Tuesday at a vigil for Lyles outside her apartment building, calling Lyles as a good person and demanding justice.

Family members questioned why police didn't use non-lethal options when they knew Lyles had been struggling with mental health issues.

"How is she a f***ing threat?" Lyles' sister, Monika Williams, asked the Seattle Times.

The mayor has called for an investigation to be launched into the shooting.

One officer asks, "You said it was an Xbox that was taken?"
