Update: Woman stabbed in High Point apartment building

(video added 11:58 pm)
ORIGINAL POST: We’re en route to check it out – 6300 block of 34th SW. More shortly. 10:54 PM UPDATE: About eight police vehicles, multiple medics – this is in the Seattle Housing Authority building on 34th just north of Morgan. No info yet on what happened or who’s hurt – our crew’s seeing one person being wheeled away. 11:02 PM UPDATE: Sgt. Sweetland at the scene tells us they’re searching for a suspect, who’s believed to have known the victim. Injuries not likely to be life-threatening. Only information we have about the victim is gender: female. 11:15 PM UPDATE: Police confirm it was a stabbing, not a shooting, but reiterate it wasn’t life-threatening wounds and that they “know exactly who they are looking for.” Most of the police/fire crews have left the scene, and as of a few minutes ago, it was our crew and Channel 4 hanging around in case more info emerges. SATURDAY UPDATE: SPD Blotter describes the victim’s injuries as “cuts to her neck and arm” and notes the suspect still is on the loose.

    I live across the street from this building. The sad thing about all of this is that I heard the sirens but since it is such a common thing for this neighborhood I didn’t even think to look out the window. At around 11:30 I finally decided there was just too much talking going on outside so I looked out the window and to my surprise the KOMO 4 news van was in our driveway!

    Nope, this is the older SHA-operated apartment building at 34th and Morgan, behind Walgreen’s and the minimart.

    When are they going to tear down that place down??? If you build they will come. If you tear it down they will go.

    Why don’t you call it the Stewart Manor stabbing?

  • WSB October 20, 2008 (10:41 pm)

    If we have occasion to refer to it again, we will. Hadn’t previously heard the building’s name mentioned, even while covering other stories in the area (like the crosswalk at 34th/Morgan) – TR

    This is a big city – there are sirens everywhere.

Sorry, comment time is over.
