UPDATE: Woman shot to death near White Center when fistfight turns deadly; Victim named, suspect held on $1 million bail

Update 6-7-17
The victim in a fistfight that turned deadly in White Center has been named and the suspect in the crime is being held on a one million dollar bond according to reports from the King County Sheriff.

Lisa Jackson was hosting a party at her apartment near 107th SW and 14th Ave. SW and her ex-roommate (now the suspect) arrived with a plan to get some of her remaining items from the premises. A fight erupted between the two and Jackson produced a gun but the roommate got control of it in the altercation. As the report indicates she said, she was walking across the parking lot to put the gun away in the glove box of her vehicle when she said Jackson charged at her. In attempting to shield her face from what was a physical attack she "heard a loud bang", the gunshot hit Jackson in the neck and proved fatal according to the King County Medical Examiner which later pronounced her dead on the scene.

Party guests then detained the suspect until police arrived.

The gun was reported stolen according to detectives.

The 28-year-old suspect is being held in King County Jail on $1 million bail for investigation of second-degree murder. Charges have not yet been filed.
