Tim Haek, a KIRO radio reporter writing for mynorthwest.com, provides some initial details into the inquest that’s begun into the Bellevue Police Department’s shooting at 43rd and Hudson last year. As he reports:
The inquest jury is expected to determine the circumstances surrounding the fatal shooting by answering a series of questions written by a county prosecutor and an attorney for the City of Bellevue. An attorney for Smith’s family will also participate in the inquest. The jury is not expected to assess guilt or blame.
The inquest is expected to wrap up by the end of the week.
UPDATE: Here’s an additional report by Haek on the inquest.
