LAKEWOOD, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say a woman was shot and killed inside her Lakewood, Washington, apartment Tuesday morning during a robbery and police are still searching for two gunmen suspected in the crime.
KOMO reports officers were called to the scene just after 1 a.m. after receiving a report from the victim’s father that his daughter had just been shot during a robbery inside the apartment.
Medics and police arrived to find a 36-year-old woman dead from a gunshot wound to the head.
The victim’s father told police two men broke into the apartment while they were home and that one was wearing a mask.
Lt. Chris Lawler with Lakewood Police said both gunmen ran off after the shooting and stealing electronics from the home.
Investigators are still looking into whether there was a connection between the victims and shooters or whether it was a random robbery.
