Police activity updates: Search near Camp Long; Alki response

Thanks to those who have texted in the past few minutes about a police search under way in the Camp Long/north High Point area. According to scanner traffic, a resident reported seeing someone emerge from a crawl space under a home and run away. That’s all we know so far; the description mentioned over the airwaves included “dirty blond hair” and a light-colored shirt.

Meantime, there is finally a tiny bit of official information regarding an incident early this morning in the Alki area that led to a major response in the 60th/Admiral/Hinds area. A neighbor had told us it involved people firing guns, and that indeed is the official online designation finally posted for the call (“weapon discharge”). We don’t know if anyone was arrested, and may not be able to find that out until after the extended holiday weekend.

    A police car has been stationed at 29th Avenue SW and SW Findlay since 9:30PM.

      Thanks, there’s still some searching happening, according to scanner traffic. Don’t know where the original sighting of the suspicious-seeming person was, though.

    Another car has been stationed at Brandon & 34th for a while too, and there’s one down Brandon on the other side near Delridge. It’s creepy, as I think someone tried to break into my house the other night, although i’m not certain. I live next to the park. I hope they get whoever it is.

    Only time I see cops in our area (east of 35th/Holden) is when something goes wrong. How come they don’t make a habit of it? Saw a patrol car driving slowly up our street; first comment we made was I wonder who got robbed/burglarized today?
