Crime scene investigators spent Sunday looking for evidence at a Redmond house where a 20-year-old Seattle woman was fatally shot earlier this morning.
A news release from the indicated police first responded to the house, located in the 16800 block of NE 97th St., at about 3:30 a.m. on an emergency call of an unknown nature. The victim, who suffered a gunshot wound to the neck, was transported to Harborview Medical Center where she underwent surgery and died at 9:58 a.m.
Detectives have identified and interviewed a person of interest in the shooting, according to the news release. Police spokesman Lt. Charlie Gorman said he was unable to release the gender or age of that individual.
"It’s still an active investigation," he said. "I’m not sure how long it will take before we have something that we can put out to the public.”
Gorman said approximately 10 people had gathered Saturday evening at the residence where the shooting took place. Investigators from the Redmond Police Department joined the Washington State Patrol in processing the scene today, he said.
