Family Recalls Loving Nature of Seattle Mom Killed by Police

But a confrontation erupted.

Many questions remain unanswered following the shooting of a pregnant Charleena Lyles this week in Seattle as demonstrators took to the streets in protest on Thursday.

The mother of four said in the call that she had gone to a store and come home to find someone had broken in. There are sounds of rapid movement, the woman yelling "Get ready, (expletive)!" and the police radioing for help and repeatedly warning her to get back before five shots are fired.

"I don't care what she was going through or what anybody was trying to bring on her, she would hit it with a smile", Williams said.

On June 5, Lyles was arrested and charged with obstruction and harassment after police say she refused officers' orders to drop metal shears.

They nevertheless found themselves with little time to react when she snapped about two minutes after they began taking her report.
