Three Redmond Police officers are on paid administrative leave after fatally shooting a 39-year-old woman Sunday evening at the Modera apartment complex in Redmond.

Andrea Wolf-Buck, public information officer with the Redmond Police Department, said police arrived at the complex at 9:20 p.m., after receiving a 911 call by the subject who reported someone inside her apartment was trying to kill her.

"Responding officers located the woman on her upper floor balcony. She reported she had been the one to call 911 and indicated that she had possibly shot someone," Wolf-Buck said. "During the interaction, she confronted officers with a handgun. Multiple shots were fired, and the subject was struck several times.

Wolf-Buck said police immediately administered CPR and requested aid, but she was pronounced dead at the scene. No officers were injured during the incident, and no one else was located in her apartment.

“As is customary with an officer-involved shooting, an outside agency is investigating the incident,” Wolf-Buck said. “The King County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit is leading the investigation, and all future updates will be released through their department.”

The Weekly reached out to KCSO Public Information Officer Sgt. Ryan Abbott for comment. No update is available at this time, but he expects to have more information as details from the incident unfold.
