We heard from a number of readers that Seattle Police blocked off the area near Boston and Thorndyke at around 4p.m. this afternoon.
One reader reported there were eight police cars blocking the intersections in the area. Another reader told us the police said they had ‘a man with a gun’ in the area and that he was in custody. We also heard reports that there were unmarked police cars involved.
We are attempting to get information about the incident from SPD but if anyone has any information, let us know in comments or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
