SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A Spokane police spokeswoman says a woman who appeared to be suffering from a drug overdose was later found to have a gunshot wound in the lower abdomen.

Spokeswoman Monique Cotton says officers responded Tuesday morning to a north Spokane residence after a male caller said there was “something wrong” with a woman at the site and there might have been a gunshot fired.

Cotton says officers and medics found a woman vomiting and appearing to be suffering from a drug overdose. There was a “large amount of drug paraphernalia” at the home. It wasn’t until the woman reached a hospital that doctors found the gunshot wound.

The woman is hospitalized with what is described as a life-threatening injury.

Police and major crimes detectives are investigating.
