Woman reports being shot in Snoqualmie Valley Trail robbery; Sheriff’s office believes incident wasn’t random, no threat to the public

A woman claims to have been shot in the hand on the Snoqualmie Valley Trail on Oct. 10, but the King County investigators are not convinced.

The woman reportedly told Bellevue Police that she had been robbed while walking on the trail. She said she was shot in the hand and the man she was with was knocked unconscious and suffered a cut on his head when he fell. They both went to Overlake Hospital the next morning to address their injuries.

When asked for comment on the investigation, Sergeant Cindi West, King County Sheriff’s Office public information officer, said the investigation was still ongoing, but they were not sure that the Snoqualmie Valley Trail location was where the shooting took place and said that the incident was not a random robbery.

“Although we do know a woman was shot in the hand we are not convinced it actually happened on the trail,” West said. “We also do not believe the incident was random and there is no danger to the public.”
