The Renton Police Department took into custody a woman who claimed to have shot her husband to death. Police said that her children were in the house at the time, and the 34-year-old mother apparently called 911 just before 1:40 p.m. on Dec. 1 to report the incident. The police said that after they arrived at the 184th Street residence, they removed the children from the home and placed them in the custody of a friend of the family.
Authorities did not release details on the woman's motive for allegedly shooting her husband, and it's unclear whether she or her husband had a previous history of family violence. She was later detained at King County Jail under potential charges of domestic violence resulting in a homicide.
