Seattle didn't want Paris to get all the attention.

Listening to scanner, one suspect dead (verified via flashbang flinch-test), two possible suspects loose (1 male 1 female).

There was also a driveby elsewhere.
 
2017-04-20 05:27:30 PM  
Driveby suspect dumped their car, still running, in a park and ran into the bathrooms.

Female suspect from robbery has been in custody, from the sound of it.

Morning Horsefarts: one suspect dead (verified via flashbang flinch-test)


Doesn't sound like a good way to verify death, maybe enough to verify that the suspect is neutralized but not necessarily dead.  Pretty sure doctors don't use this method.

Well, they also dragged him out of the building with K-9 and are sending homicide to investigate use-of-force, so it's a pretty good bet he's not alive.

Rite-aid has shooting on video.

Female suspect was a juvenile.  Third suspect still loose.

Thank god for body armor.  Still ain't exactly thrilled at the idea of cops lobbing grenades around, but I wont begrudge them a single cent spent on protection.

Yeah he may very much be dead, that's just a weird way to say you have confirmed that.  I can't really picture an EMT arriving, going "BOOGABOOGA", noticing no movement and saying "Welp, he dead."

Great, now I can't not picture it going down that way.

Oh I know that was a dumb reason to say he was dead, but it was the justification they used to say he was safe to drag out via dog.

If they were smart, they wouldn't be shock troops.

I think the best way to tell if a farker is dead is to wait for rigor mortis to set in

Pull down his pants. If is cock is solid hard, he's dead.

I dunno. Google for signs of death?

Bearcat is on scene, officers calling in from home to offer to work.

Dispatch is short of personnel, can't open new TAC channel.
 
2017-04-20 06:20:37 PM  
Possible sighting of suspect.  Didn't catch the location.
 
2017-04-20 06:39:41 PM  
Needs more coffee.
 
2017-04-20 06:39:52 PM  
No outstanding suspects, third suspect was not involved.

They must've been assholes to the cops to get that kinda transmission.

Of course they might enjoy their work more...

I know an ER doc who would consider throwing a flash bang into the waiting room.  Anyone who stays after that is probably sick enough to be in the ER...or the morgue.

Anyone who returns fire probably gets free medical down at the VA and got lost.

Seems like the 'shooter' isn't so active anymore.

McGavin anyone?

If only downtown Seattle were itself a gun, this could have been avoided.
 
2017-04-20 07:45:55 PM  
This is NOT an active shooter. This is someone who shot and was shot. Jesus, I am sick of this inflammatory shiat. Folks, everyday there is some active motherfarker shooting some other active motherfarker. That is NOT an active shooter.

Stop taking over the meaning of words. Terrorist somehow became associated with rebels and now active shooters (like columbine) are equivalent to quick weapons discharges/exchanges.
 
2017-04-20 07:46:15 PM  
So it's terrorists, right?
 
2017-04-20 07:46:19 PM  
When can we buy the guns at a police auction?

My nephew is down there right now.  He drives one of the FPS rigs in the photos.  Nice kid.

I'm glad they are active.  Too many people live a sedentary lifestyle these days.
 
2017-04-20 07:48:03 PM  
Probably a robbery...

I love the one guy behind cover with an angle shot that is impossible to engage with a target that is standing below 30 feet. Jesus, we need better training.

Shooter dead, accomplice arrested and wounded police officer upgraded to serious condition. Who the fark steals alcohol on 4/20 anyway?

That guy is SPD.  Frankly, they shouldn't be allowed to play with guns.
 
2017-04-20 07:54:33 PM  
I happened to be downtown when this was happening. Every freaking Seattle cop was all lit up and on the way over there, and I guess that wasn't enough, since FPS showed up too.
 
2017-04-20 07:54:34 PM  
smh

Just letting it go and filing a police report was too safe?  I'm sure that case of booze was worth a couple of lives lost.

After reading some of theses comments had to show the wife Monty Python and the dead parrot.

711 robbery goes south, couple shots exchanged. Hardly shocking given the fact that Seattle is essentially one giant tent city these days. That particular section of town is pretty bad, lots of OD's. Glad Mr Cuzsis isn't working down there anymore. 

/shot in the ribcage huh? Someone not wearing their armor? 
//glad the cops were okay.

Why?  So they can get more bold next time?  Maybe tell all their friends how easy it is to rob your store, increasing the frequency of robberies?   It was armed robbery.

Good to know for my next visit :)

All snark aside, the young man is trying and possible scared.

It is ok, as I have said to my team for 30 years. It is easy from the cheap seats. Ignore them. Including me.

So one guy opens fire and hits three different officers? Sounds like he's talented

Place bets on yow long until suspect in custody shoots themselves... eight times... in the back.
