SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) -- Northern Idaho officials have released the names of three Sandpoint police officers involved in a fatal shooting after responding to a report of a woman with a knife.
The Bonner County Sheriff's Office says that officers Skylar Ziegler, Michael Valenzuela and Garrett Johnson were involved in the July 8 shooting near Bonner General Hospital.
Det. Sgt. Gary Johnston told media sources Wednesday that Johnson was undergoing field training at the time of the shooting.
Authorities didn't say which officer fired the round that struck 35-year-old Jeanetta Marie Riley in the chest.
Authorities say Riley refused commands to not approach officers and refused to drop a knife.
Johnston says the officers then used deadly force to stop the threat.
