Woman shot, killed in doorway of her Federal Way apartment


A woman was shot and killed in the doorway of her apartment overnight in Federal Way, and police are trying to figure out who did it and why.

Officers responded to the scene, the Glen Park Apartments in the 900 block of SW Campus Drive, just before midnight after several people called 911 to report shots fired, said Cmdr. Kurt E. Schwan of the Federal Way police.

When officers arrived they found a 44-year-old woman with gunshot wounds. They rendered first aid until medics arrived and took over but the victim succumbed to her injuries and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators responded to collect evidence, interview witnesses and look for possible surveillance footage.

So far, police say they don’t know why the woman was targeted.

“There is no suspect information at this time, nor is there any known motive for this incident,” Schwan said.
