“During this, the other party [allegedly] began to shoot at Kamran and her boyfriend. Kamran was shot and killed.”
According to Skagit County jail booking information, Angela Conijn, 55, has been charged with second-degree murder.
A man reported that his friend – Kamran Cohee – had been shot.
She was found dead on the driveway.

Court documents say that Conijn’s husband, John Conijn, 58, told detectives he saw a car in his driveway “and believed someone was stealing his political sign.”
Undersheriff Chad Clark told King 5 News that the force is used to getting complaints about political signs.
He said: “They come and go every election year. We get those kinds of calls – but not to this extent, to where there’s gunfire and somebody’s dead.
“[It] ended up being a fight over the political sign that the male in the vehicle was trying to [allegedly] steal.”
Court documents say both men told investigating deputies that they were fighting outside the house.

John Conijn – according to the court files – exited the house when he saw someone pull into his driveway, as he thought they were trying to steal the political sign.
Conijn claimed he was “chased back to his residence” and that Cohee and the man were allegedly bashing his door with a wheelbarrow, according to the court documents.
Angela Conijn then allegedly came out with a gun, the documents added.
Clark said: “The 55-year-old wife came out of the house, [allegedly] fired several rounds and the female that got out of the truck… was struck and killed.”
She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Cohee and the Conijns are not believed to have known each other.
John Conijn was released from jail on bail after being charged with assault.
It’s not known whether the man driving the truck will be charged with attempted theft of the political sign.

“Many know of Kamran’s struggles and that she has been rebuilding her life for the better.
“All prayers are welcome and encouraged. We thank you for your patience and kindness during this heartbreaking time.”
On Facebook, Cohee’s sister, Kasey Dodge, posted about her shock over her sibling’s sudden death.
She wrote: “I wasn’t planning on posting this yet due to the fact I’m still processing it.
