Seattle police: No choice but lethal force in fatal shooting

26 June 2017, 01:30 | Amanda Barker

On Thursday, police released surveillance video from the hallway outside the apartment, which shows that no one other than Lyles left or entered her apartment in the hours before she was shot.

"They're trying to portray her as someone who wanted police to kill her - which is a bold-face lie", her father said.

Whitcomb also told GeekWire that he was not directed by Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O'Toole or Mayor Ed Murray's office to end outreach with Twitch.

'And at that point, fearing for what was about to happen, what she would do to me, um, being stuck in that spot, I fired my handgun, ' he told investigators, noting he remembered hearing shots coming from Anderson's location. "We will get to the truth. We'll conduct this investigation thoroughly". Lyles had called police to report a domestic disturbance at her apartment.

Over the past year, Lyles had struggled with depression but was seeking help, according to family members and King County District Court records. Still, some readers might be inclined to infer from the conflicting headlines that the "gains" the SPD is credited with making don't include the ability to handle people suffering from mental illness in a nonlethal way. "And that's why we have to say, once again, murder is murder is murder is murder". But she was attending his church regularly, and was making an effort to improve her life, Isabell said. She lived with various relatives over the years and with him in California, where the kids had friends up and down the street where he lived. The family lived in permanent housing set aside for those who previously were homeless.

Seattle police shared photos of the knives found inside Charleena Lyles' apartment following the shooting. They calmly discuss an X-Box video game console being taken and roughly 15 seconds later, officers could be heard saying "Get back!" She said she will miss having that support.

"She's a little bitty woman".

"If the officer has time, space and cover, they have more options than using deadly force, but that's not necessarily going to be the case", said Sue Rahr, a former sheriff and the executive director of the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission.

Anderson said he wasn't carrying a Taser because the battery in his died two weeks earlier, but he told investigators he wouldn't have used it anyway because he was trained to use lethal force when someone is attacking with a knife.
