Update: “Assault with weapons” call — false alarm!

The live 911 log says six Seattle Fire units have responded to an “assault with weapons, 7 per rule” (the latter part usually means serious injuries) call in the 8800 block of 20th SW (at Trenton; here’s a map). That’s all we know right now – on the way to find out more. 1:47 PM UPDATE: Here’s what detectives told us on the scene — an intoxicated person wandered into someone’s yard and the homeowner reportedly claimed they’d heard gunshots. But in reality, police learned at the scene — no gun, no gunshots, the intoxicated person is hurt from having fallen down and will be cared for.

    Crazy, because I’m sitting here five blocks away and don’t hear any sirens, and everything appears to be normal.

    Just posted an update. Police are still there because my co-publisher just talked to a detective but most of the fire units probably pulled out pretty quick once it was learned weapons were NOT involved. Whew.
