Authorities in Washington State have arrested a Donald Trump supporter accused of shooting dead another woman who tried to steal a sign supporting the ex-President.
Angela Marie Conijn, 55, was booked into the county jail on second-degree murder charges after allegedly killing 32-year-old Kamran Cohee.
A magistrate’s warrant was issued against Conijnon Tuesday, granting officers 30 days to file charges in the felony-level Skagit County Superior Court, Mail Online reports.
Police officers from Skagit County Sheriff’s Office were reportedly called out to a property in Mount Vernon, Washington, on Saturday around 5.25pm after reports of a fight.
A few minutes later a second call was lodged with police from a man who said his friend had been shot. When officers arrived at the property they discovered the body of Cohee lying in the driveway.
Investigators have said that the victim and the alleged shooter did not know themselves, but that the incident started over a political sign believed to be in support of Donald Trump.
Court documents state Cohee, and a man, pulled into the Conijn’s driveway, allegedly so he could let air out of their vehicle’s tires.
Conijn’s husband claims he came out of his house when he saw someone pull into his driveway, believing they were trying to steal his political sign. A fight then broke out between Conijn’s husband and the man who had arrived with Cohee, before Conijn’s husband was chased back inside his home.
Conijn’s husband told officers that Cohee and the other man started beating on his front door with a wheelbarrow, at which point Conijn exited their home and fired a gun towards the parked vehicle.
The shot struck Cohee, whose body was found 50ft from the house and 25ft from the road.
The man who arrived with Cohee allegedly admitted to taking the political sign.
Conijn is currently being held in the Skagit County Community Justice Center on $500,000 bail. Her husband was first taken to Skagit Valley Hospital for treatment for a facial injury before he was later arrested on assault charges.

Man ate neighbor’s heart before stabbing young girl and killing his uncle
An American man has been accused of a triple murder, including cutting the heart out of his neighbour to eat at home.
A judge has heard how a US man, Lawrence Paul Anderson, 42, allegedly killed his neighbor at Chickasha, Oklahoma, before returning home with the heart and eating it.
In court the judge was told that Anderson “cooked the heart with potatoes to feed to his family to release the demons”.
He is also accused of killing his uncle Leon Pye, 67, and four-year-old girl Kaeos Yates at his own home.
He also allegedly stabbed his aunt Delsie Pye, who survived but has wounds in her eyes.
Law enforcement say Anderson confessed to the murder of his neighbour while he was being interviewed by law enforcement in hospital.
He was just released from prison in January, after a 20-year-sentence he was serving for drug and firearms offences committed while on parole.
He was commuted to nine years in 2017 but was released early in 2020.
Boko Haram terrorists slaughter 5 IDPs in Borno
Suspected Boko Haram terrorists have slaughtered five Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Damboa Local Government Area of Borno state.
It was gathered that the insurgents attacked the IDPs when they went in search of firewood outside Damboa town on Thursday, February 18.
A vigilante, Abu Damboa, who confirmed the incident to Daily Trust, said eight IDPs were declared missing when they didn’t return. He and his colleagues then embarked on a search-and-rescue operation.
“We got the report to that some IDPs were missing. So, we swang into action but later found five of them beheaded two kilometres away from the scene where they were falling trees. It was disheartening to see fellow human beings slaughtered like animals, they were all displaced persons, “Abu said.
Humanitarian sources said that the victims have been buried according to Islamic rites.
“Information received was that eight IDPs who went in search of firewood outside Damboa town some 6-8kms were abducted. Five dead bodies out of the eight missing IDPs were recovered this morning,” a humanitarian source revealed.
Meanwhile, the chairman of Damboa Local Govt, Prof. A G Alooma, his vice, Ali M Kauji and their councillors on Friday, paid a condolence visit to the families of the victims.
After praying for the victims, Prof delivered foodstuffs and cash for the three days prayers.
