A 46-year-old Kirkland woman shot herself in the chest with a handgun April 29, and was taken to a local hospital.

Capt. Nick Almquist with the Snoqualmie Police Department, said police responded at 7 a.m. to the Salish Lodge near Snoqualmie Falls with a report of a self-inflicted shooting.

He said the woman had been staying at the lodge for a couple days and had reportedly been depressed. She shot herself while sitting in the car at the lodge’s parking lot.

Almquist said that when police arrived, she was still conscious and was transported to a local hospital, where her condition remains unknown.
