Update: Police response in 5600 block of 42nd SW

November 28, 2012 at 5:38 pm | In West Seattle news, West Seattle police | 10 Comments

5:38 PM: Thanks for the reports of police rushing with lights and sirens – they’re headed to an “assault with weapons” call in the 5600 block of 42nd SW. More shortly.

5:42 PM: The call has “closed” on the Seattle Fire online 911 log. But we’ll still check with whomever we find at the scene.

5:46 PM: We’re told at the scene that while this went out as “assault with weapons,” it’s now believed to be self-inflicted. As we always mention in such cases: Crisis Clinic is there for 24-hour help, including their hotline at 206-461-3222.


  1. Heard all the sirens passing by… thanks for letting us know what was going on. Hope the person is going to be alright.

  2. Hope all turns out well for the person.


    WSB, thank you for always including the crisis line’s number– makes it handy for when someone is in need, rather than having to go find it.

  4. Have zero idea as to the identity but I *believe* the scanner traffic mentioned the other gender.

  7. I am so sorry to hear this. That was over near Findlay, if one I heard, right. Again, thoughts out to all concerned, and thank you, ad always, for excellent and conscientious reporting with sensitivity.

  8. Its been a tough day here on our little island. Be kind, everyone – you never know if your small kindness will make all the difference for someone else. And please, please call the crisis line if you are depressed. They are amazing and they CAN help.

  9. Related: If I remember correctly, the crisis clinic needs volunteers.

    Best wishes to whomever was involved in this incident.
