An unarmed pregnant woman shot during a drug raid in Spokane nearly two weeks ago faces felony crack cocaine charges under a police recommendation announced Wednesday.
Keamia D. Powell, 24, gave birth shortly after she was shot in the shoulder Sept. 24 at 1405 N. Lincoln St. No. 11, where she lives with her mother, Aletha A. Robinson, 41.
Investigators are recommending Powell and Robinson each be charged with felonies after detectives found crack cocaine in their apartment as part of an ongoing probe into drug dealing in the Moscow-Pullman area.
The apartment is where police arrested a woman caught on tape assaulting her young son at the downtown bus plaza in November. Powell is the woman’s niece.
