  • Police: Video shows only Lyles entering home before shooting

Her family members claimed deadly force was used when less lethal methods were available, and believe race was a factor in the shooting.

In the Sunday 911 call, Lyles calls to report a break-in, telling the operator she "noticed some stuff missing" after a trip to the store.

Lyles, whom relatives called "Leena", grew up in Seattle and was largely raising two boys and two girls on her own - including a 4-year girl with Down syndrome - but she had a supportive network of siblings, cousins, aunts and others, Williams said.

Whitcomb also told GeekWire that he was not directed by Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O'Toole or Mayor Ed Murray's office to end outreach with Twitch.

"She was talking normally and interacting with us normally and then all of a sudden, she's trying to stab me with a knife", Anderson recalled.

Seattle police say surveillance video from the hallway outside Charleena Lyles' apartment shows that no one other than her entered in the 24 hours before Sunday's shooting that left the pregnant mother dead.

The Blues wanted £88million for the Spain global but the two clubs eventually reached an agreement for £50million. According to reports, this deal will keep the 47-year old at the Bridge till 2021.

Lyles had been in counseling, with and without her children, and she had obtained housing previous year after fighting homelessness for a decade, court records indicate.

'I don't know at what point she changed her focus from, from me to Steve, um, but as she started turning the corner to go after Steve, that's when I, um, that's when I shot'.

Lyles was killed after police officers responded to reports of a burglary near Seattle's Magnuson Park. "We'll conduct this investigation thoroughly". "Get back!" and "We need help" before gunfire erupts. She was released conditionally June 14.

Lyles' father, Charles, said Lyles was devastated when her mother died in 2005. But she also anxious they would be taken from her because an abusive ex-boyfriend, the father of the youngest children, was causing problems for her. Still, some readers might be inclined to infer from the conflicting headlines that the "gains" the SPD is credited with making don't include the ability to handle people suffering from mental illness in a nonlethal way. She said she will miss having that support. "And they shoot her to death in front of her kids?" he said.

But he said that he wouldn't have used it in that situation because he was trained to use lethal force when being attacked by someone with a knife.
