When officers removed her from the car and took her into custody, a dog inside the car jumped out and attacked another dog that was nearby, according to Redmond police.

When a Bellevue officer jumped in to break up the dog fight, he accidentally fired a gunshot into the pavement.

Redmond police were not involved but are investigating.

Redmond police detectives are asking anyone who witnessed the incident to contact them at 425-556-2500 or police@redmond.gov.
