Shelton woman who was shot at door dies of wound


SHELTON (AP) — A Shelton woman who was shot early Wednesday when she answered a knock at her door died over the weekend at an Olympia hospital.

The sheriff’s office says deputies are looking for a man who fled the home.

Chief Deputy Dean Byrd says investigators determined that initial reports of two suspects were incorrect and they’re looking for only one man.

Byrd says the motive for the shooting is unknown. Two other people in the house at the time of the shooting barricaded themselves inside for safety. He says they were not able to provide much information.

The dead woman is identified as 30-year-old Barbara Michelle Giles of Shelton.
