Woman wounded by shots fired into Kent home

A 31-year-old woman is in stable but serious condition after she was shot in the head in her Kent home last night.

There were several children in the home at the time of the shooting, but they were not injured, according to Kent police.

The woman who was shot suffered a serious injury and was taken to a hospital.

The shot came from outside the home and whoever did it took off, according to Kent police.

Around 9 p.m., police responded to a report that a woman had been shot in a home in the 24500 block of 104 Avenue Southeast. Officers found a woman with a serious gunshot wound to her head. Medics took her to the hospital.

Police say it’s fortunate no one else was injured in the shooting.

“This incident could have easily been far more devastating” said Kent Police Detective Melanie Frazier.

Police don’t have a motive for the shooting as yet.
