SWAT team right down the street

My neighbor and I were en route to the dump this afternoon when we passed a SWAT team van with lights going.  Don’t see that every day.  We joked about getting out just in time.

Coming back home we were surprised to discover that the van was in our neighborhood, accompanied by about 20 police cruisers.  Apparently a man with a gun has been holed up in an apartment for a couple of hours in a standoff situation.

I just heard something like firecrackers, then several louder explosions.  Rather than walk over to the scene, we’ll continue to follow the story on the West Seattle Blog, our best source for local news.

LATER THAT EVENING…

Situation ended with man taken into custody after about five hours.  No hostages, no injuries.  Whew.
