Shoreline protest over fatal police shooting

About three dozen family members, friends and activists protested in front of the Shoreline Police Department for about an hour Thursday over the death of David Albrecht, who was fatally shot by police Aug. 10. Police had been called after Albrecht threatened suicide.

The mother of a man fatally shot by Shoreline police last month stood on North 185th Street on Thursday, only inches from traffic, holding a sign and a megaphone.

“Police killed my son,” yelled Tatiana Albrecht to passing cars. “I loved you, my son.”

David Albrecht was shot and killed Aug. 10 — his 22nd birthday — in front of his family home in the 700 block of North 200th Street.

Police were called to the house after Albrecht reportedly put a knife to his throat and threatened to kill himself.
