Associated Press SEATTLE — Newly released body camera video shows how Seattle police opened fire on a woman in the Chinatown International District as a gun flies through the air. The shooting happened Wednesday night as officers responded to 911 calls reporting a woman shooting a gun. As the officers close in, it appears that she ignored commands from police to show her hands and get down. She threw an object into the air that police say was a gun as five shots are heard. The woman screamed after being shot in the shoulder and took off clothing as officers rushed to apply a tourniquet to her arm. She was listed in critical condition as of Thursday at Harborview Medical Center. The woman faces felony assault, theft of a firearm and weapons charges.
