Charleena Lyles 30 pregnant mother of 4 killed by Seattle police

According to Police Detective Mark Jamieson, police were told of "hazard information" per a previous encounter with Lyles, which was why two officers responded.

"She let them in, then she started talking all insane about how the officers weren't gonna leave", one of the officers says, referencing a previous call.

"Officers were confronted by a 30-year-old woman armed with a knife", the Seattle police wrote its web blotter.

"Hey, get back! Get back!" says one of the cops, and then, the other, before several gunshots are heard.

On the dashcam audio of Sunday's incident, officers can be heard greeting Lyles and asking questions about the burglary report.

The footage, which is from the officers' dash cam and from a camera in the hallway outside the woman's apartment, does not show the Sunday shooting.

At a vigil Sunday night, family identified the woman as Charleena Lyles, according to the Times, and relatives said she had a history of mental health struggles. Monika Williams, Lyles' sister, asked Sunday as she tried to make sense of why police shot and killed the mother-to-be. She was "tiny", they said, and believe her race - she is African American - was a factor.

"While property crimes reports typically require only one officer to be dispatched, two officers were dispatched to this particular call for service because of a recent officer safety caution associated with the caller", a Seattle police statement said as to why the extra officer was warranted. She said that Ms Lyles had "mental health issues" for but did not provide any further detail.

According to the dash cam audio, they seemed to be having a normal conversation with her, as she tells them about what's been stolen - she confirms a missing Xbox.

She said her sister had been arrested earlier this month, with a weapon in her hand, after getting into a confrontation with her child's father. "I could have taken her down", Williams told the Times. No officers were injured.

Both officers were placed on administrative leave after the shooting, The Washington Post reported, which is standard procedure.

"Get back! Get back!" an officer says, and a woman's voice responds, "Do it!" She was four months pregnant when Indian River County Sheriff's deputies targeted what they suspected to be a drug den.
