A State Patrol detective sergeant shot and wounded a pregnant woman while serving a search warrant in Spokane Friday.
The officer is with the Quad City Drug Task Force, which was serving a search warrant about 8:15 a.m. at 1405 N. Lincoln, according to the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office, which is investigating the shooting.
The woman, who investigators said is 39 weeks pregnant, was taken to a hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, according to Sgt. Dave Reagan of the sheriff’s office.
A woman who identified herself as the victim’s mother said the shooting happened as her daughter, who she said was unarmed, was shot through the back window, then pulled out of the window by law enforcement, the woman said.
