What the big police response at Lincoln Park is about

Thanks for the tips about a sizable police response at/near the north parking lot at Lincoln Park. Here’s what police tell us happened: Making a traffic stop, they noticed a gun in the car, and called for backup. It turned out to be a realistic-looking Airsoft-type gun. They also told us they are still investigating other possible issues regarding the vehicle/driver, so the scene hasn’t cleared quite yet.

    I saw 9 cursers and a boat load of SPD. I believe the situation was handled correctly. Kudos to SPD for your professionalism.

      I’ve tried to get followup information and failed so far, just in case anyone’s wondering. Traffic stops don’t always come up with incident numbers that we can use to pursue further details.

Sorry, comment time is over.
