Overnight notes – ‘booms’ = fireworks; water search

May 26, 2013 at 11:48 pm | In West Seattle news, WS breaking news | 3 Comments

ORIGINAL REPORT, 11:48 PM: More people are starting to ask about “booms” heard in the past half-hour-plus, in areas including Upper Morgan and North Delridge, wondering if it was gunfire, so we’re mentioning it here: So far, police-radio traffic indicates, they believe it’s fireworks. No evidence of anyone having been shot, or of non-injury gunfire. (If you have any further information, to the contrary or otherwise, please let police know.)

ADDED 4:12 AM: If you are up and noticing some searching in the Fauntleroy ferry-dock area, scanner suggests it has something to do with a report of a watercraft or dinghy of some kind. There’s no rescue response at this time, no reported need for one, so far.

  2. I believe this is the water search, it was a missing person floating in an 8′ boat.

  3. The searching was definitely on this side, no mention of Bainbridge or Blake or Manchester, so not sure that’s necessarily it, but glad to know the person found over there is OK! – TR
