The Seattle Police SWAT team was in West Seattle briefly this morning. According to SPD spokesperson Renee Witt, the police received a call about a family member threatening another family member with a gun in a home near the intersection in the 4700 block of 26th SW (map). Witt says the situation ended when the suspect surrendered shortly after the SWAT team arrived and that suspect is currently in custody.

    I saw this (very cool) SWAT truck speeding down 1st Ave near Starbucks and Home Depot headed to the stand-off. Made my cubical job feel very boring all morning.
