The 23-year-old mother of three reached out for help with her depression. She ended up dead.

Renee Davis was shot and killed by King* County (Washington) Sheriff’s deputies on Friday (October 21). The 23-year-old Native woman was five months pregnant and struggling with depression. She texted a friend to say that she was “in a bad way,” her foster sister, Danielle Bargala, told the Seattle Times.

The oldest child was with a family friend during the shooting.
