"They could have pushed her aside like this", swiping the air with her palm.
Ms Lyles' sister Monika Williamssaid that her sister was released on the recommendation that she seek mental health counselling, but it is unclear if that was the case or if she was receiving any such care. They wondered if her race - Lyles was African-American and both officers are white - played any part in the shooting. "You guys could have tazed her or anything".
Lyles allegedly opened her door holding a knife.
Police Sgt. Mark Jamieson said two officers went to Lyles' address after she called to report a burglary.
"Officers had dealt with this particular unit, this particular caller, just recently".
A cousin of a mother who was shot and killed by Seattle police has questioned why officers didn't use a Taser or other non-lethal options during the encounter.
Force investigations like these can take months to complete.
The Seattle Police Department has been under a federal consent decree since 2012, after a Department of Justice investigation found its officers routinely engaged in excessive use of force, most often against people with mental or substance abuse problems.
Authorities are still trying to determine if they witnessed the shooting, Jamieson said. She was released from jail Wednesday on certain conditions, according to King County jail records.
Relatives wondered why police shot her instead of Tasering her. Lyles was charged with obstruction because she refused to hand over one of the children to officers until her Williams arrived at the scene.
"She was not a person you would fear or feel intimidated by", he said.
"She didn't charge nobody or nothing", Williams toldKOMO News. She had struggles, they both said - with mental health as well as an abusive boyfriend - but she was working on it.
Loved ones and friends left candles, flowers, and signs outside her apartment near Magnuson Park Sunday night.
- At least two of her children were at home during the shooting. Several children were also present but were not injured, police said.
Lyles' death also comes less than two days after a St. Paul, Minnesota, jury acquitted St. Anthony Police Officer Jeronimo Yanez for the July killing of Philando Castile.
The recording then jumps to the initial conversation between Lyles and the officers in her home. Lyles' brother, Michael Taylor, spoke to them: "This is my family and we're going to be as one", said Taylor.
Seattle Mayor Ed Murray said in a statement that the shooting was "a tragedy for all involved". "This will be fully investigated", Murray said.
