UPDATE: ‘Assault with weapons’ call in 4000 block of California SW

8:53 PM: Seattle Fire is sending an “assault with weapons” medical response to the 4000 block of California SW [map], north of The Junction. Police are on the way too. No other details yet. More to come.

9:01 PM: Our crew is still on the way to find out more, but in the meantime, the SFD log shows all but one unit (Engine 32) has been canceled.

9:11 PM: Here’s what police tell us happened: A woman showed up at the California/Andover mini-mart/gas station with a cut to her head. She told them she was injured in Burien. A private ambulance crew is checking her out; a King County Sheriff’s unit (they handle Burien) has arrived to pick up the investigation. They’re not commenting.

    The couple that own the gas station are so nice, they always have a smile!

      really?  I’ve never seen them smile at anyone; have often wondered if
      they ever smile; perhaps you have the magic that brings it out in them

      I totally agree with you. They’ve always been so nice to me my kids and my grandkids. Always a kind word. She’s even memorized my recipe for a banana bubble tea.  

Sorry, comment time is over.
