They also say they sent two officers to the scene because of previous contact with her. The Times reports that both officers are white.

Seattle police are i. It was unclear what relationship the children had with Lyles, but police say they were being cared for by other family members.

The incident happened just before 10 a.m. Sunday at a Solid Ground housing complex for formerly homeless families in the 6800 block of 62nd Avenue NE.

In the recording, officers can be heard talking about responding to the burglary call together, SPD detective Mark Jamieson said in a video posted on Twitter.

Local station KIRO reports that Lyles called the police to report a burglary. Several children were also present but were not injured, police said.

Lyles' family said she had a history of mental illness but insisted she wasn't a threat.

"She let them in, then she started talking all insane about how the officers weren't going to leave", one officer says on the tape. At some point, police said, the woman confronted them with a knife, and both officers fired their weapons. Her sister said Lyles was a mother of four children who had previous encounters with police.

"The officers immediately performed first aid", but medics arrived and determined she had died, the Police Department said.

The officers will meet with police union officials and create a story that revolves around how they "feared for their life". When they arrived, police can be heard on audio released by the Seattle Times discussing Charleena's reported mental health issues.

The recording then jumps to the initial conversation between Lyles and the officers in her home.
