Initial information is that the female, a 37-year old Kent resident was in an argument with a male, a 23-year old Kent resident, prior to him shooting her. The male remained on location when officers arrived and is currently being interviewed by Kent Detectives. Initial information indicates that the parties knew each other.

Kent Detectives have been called out to conduct the investigation. They are working to determine the relationship between the male and female, as well as the sequence of events that led to this shooting.
