11:25 AM: We’re getting word of a police/fire response at Don Armeni Boat Ramp, and one tipster says it’s affecting traffic on Harbor Avenue SW. It reportedly involves a person in crisis in the area. Avoid the area for now. We’ll update when we find out more.
11:38 AM: Police tell us the first call on this came in about an hour ago. They have crisis-trained officers on scene and “are doing everything they can to resolve it peacefully.” Harbor is blocked near Seacrest on the east side.
11:41 AM: Per scanner, the situation is now under control and police are reopening Harbor and the boat ramp shortly. The person had been reported to be threatening suicide and police had been told the person was believed to have been armed. (Reminder, as we always note when we mention situations involving self-harm or threats of it, the Crisis Clinic‘s 24-hour hotline is 206-461-3222.)
11:50 AM: Now that this is being resolved, we’re adding photos sent to us (thank you) showing the response:
11:56 AM: Our crew arriving in the area says Harbor is still blocked at California.
12:01 PM: And NOW it’s reopened. The person in crisis is being taken to a hospital. And police/fire are clearing out of the park.
