KENNEBUNK — A lawyer for the family of a Kennebunk woman killed in a police shooting says he’s found nothing to suggest that she acted with deadly force toward police.

Attorney Dan Warren, of Scarborough, tells the Portsmouth Herald he has no evidence that police were justified in shooting 39-year-old Katherine Paulson when they went to the Kennebunk home she shared with her mother in response to a report of a domestic dispute.

Police have said she confronted Officer Joshua Morneau with “deadly force.”

The March 27 shooting is being probed by the Maine Attorney General’s office, which reviews police shootings. Kennebunk police will do their own investigataion when the state releases its findings.
