SEATTLE (AP) - A Snohomish County Sheriff’s spokeswoman says a 24-year-old woman asked people at a Home Depot parking lot to help her unjam a gun. When deputies arrived, she shot herself in the head.

Spokeswoman Shari Ireton says the woman was transported to Harborview Medical Center. Her condition was not immediately known Saturday.

Ireton says that after the woman asked strangers to help her unjam the weapon, a 911 call was placed. Deputies found her parked in a loading zone. When she saw the deputy, she put the gun to the side of her head and fired.

Ireton says it’s unclear if someone helped her unjam the weapon or if she fixed it herself.
