UPDATE: Police search at Hamilton Viewpoint Park

(WSB photo)

1:03 PM: Thanks for the tips. We are at Hamilton Viewpoint Park, as are at least eight SPD cars. We are told this started with someone thinking they saw someone with a gun, but so far police aren’t finding any evidence of that.

1:10 PM We have since found SW Precinct Capt. Pierre Davis at the scene. He says police are working to get a search warrant for a car that might be connected to the alleged weapon sighting.

    Any thing yet?

      Search warrants tend to take a while and I don’t know that we’ll hear anything over the air, so Patrick and I are going back out in a bit to check all of today’s developing-news locations, including this one.

    Any new news?  I see there are roadblocks across California and I just saw an SPD and a State Police car in the Admiral/ California area.

      We just went back and through the park about 45 minutes ago and the park was completely empty of police. Where are you seeing a “roadblock”?

        I was at Walker/ California and looking up the street. I could see orange barrels and the bigger roadblocks about as far ahead as I could see. Maybe at the park or a little closer. Not sure if the road was fully closed or not.

          That’s not a roadblock. It’s cones and signs marking off a worksite in the middle of the street. Been there at least a couple days. We went by it yesterday and again twice today. As for this afternoon’s incident, since police were gone, we’re not likely to be able to get followup info tonight so we’ll try tomorrow morning. – TR

            Whoops!  Sorry about that! I go the same route every day. I noticed it today, thought it looked weird, checked WSB and it’s all a coincidence. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
