Washington State Police Shoot, Kill Pregnant Mother of Three

HeadlineOct 24, 2016

In Washington state, police shot and killed a pregnant mother of three inside her home on the Muckleshoot Indian Reservation Friday night. Twenty-three-year-old Renee Davis died after a pair of King County sheriff’s deputies opened fire on her. In a statement, the Sheriff’s Department said Davis was armed with a handgun. Davis’s foster sister said police were conducting a “wellness check” after receiving a report that Davis was suicidal. A recent investigation by In These Times magazine found that Native Americans were more likely to be killed by police than any other group in the United States.
