An 18-year-old Iranian girl was fatally shot by Iran’s police forces on Thursday during a raid on her family home in a village in Lorestan province, western Iran.

Police forces entered her family home without presenting a court order, according to rights group Kurdistan Human Rights Network (KHRN).

"On Thursday, June 20, police forces from the Cheshmeh Sefid police station in the town of Noorabad, Lorestan Province, raided the home of Shokr Reza Rahmani in the village of Goijeh under the pretext of conducting a search for illicit drugs," KHRN write.

"During the raid, the family’s 18-year-old daughter, Razieh Rahmani, was fatally shot in the head," it added.

A source close to the family told KHRN that a verbal altercation ensued between a family member and a police officer, during which the officer fired a shot, striking Razieh in the head and resulting in her death.
