KENT, Wash. (AP) -- Police say a 45-year-old Kent, Wash., woman fatally stabbed a 42-year-old man as they drove through the south Seattle suburb.

Assistant Police Chief Pat Lowery says officers were called Friday night to the Kent Medical Center after a teenage boy sought help there. He said a family member had been stabbed and was bleeding in the parking lot.

The unidentified, injured man was pronounced dead at the scene. He is also from Kent.

Police arrested the woman and are trying to clarify the circumstances of the attack.

Lowery calls it "a very unusual situation."
