Update: Helicopter ‘assisting with robbery call’

helicopterwatch.png11:32 PM: Thanks to everyone who has texted and e-mailed about a helicopter that’s apparently over White Center/Highland Park right now. Not sure yet what’s going on but we’re checking. There was a Seattle Fire dispatch to the 9400 block of 15th SW and the arriving engine reported via scanner that there was no patient at the scene plus “all the deputies and police have gone somewhere else.” If you’re seeing the law enforcement response on the ground, county or city, please let us know! We’ll continue to sleuth.

MIDNIGHT: Guardian One, the King County Sheriff’s Office helicopter that assists other agencies too, says via Twitter that it was “over White Center assisting with a robbery call.” No further details.

    The helicopter was flying low over the 15th Ave SW / White Center area for about 20 minutes until 11:30. Heard some sirens, too, but now everything is quiet.

    I heard the chopper make what sounded like maybe one or two passes, (may have been more, and I simply didn’t notice) figured if I heard it make a few more passes I’d step outside and try to spot it, then report it here.


    Then heard E11, which silenced it’s siren just north of mid-block in the 9000 block of 16th.
