UPDATE: About the police response at Don Armeni Boat Ramp

(WSB photo)

7:12 PM: If you’re out on the West Seattle waterfront and wondering about all the police – all we have is from the scanner so far: This was dispatched as a report of possible gunfire involving someone in at least one vehicle. That has not been confirmed, and there is no word of anyone being hurt. Police are in the Don Armeni Boat Ramp vicinity right now trying to sort it all out.

7:23 PM: We are in the vicinity – the police response and the usual warm-night Alki-bound traffic are combining for some congestion.

Again via scanner, police have not found any confirmation of, or witnesses who saw, gunfire, so this might break up soon.

7:35 PM: Though one person was briefly detained, he’s been released as there is no evidence any crime was committed, police tell us. They also have cleared that person’s vehicle off to the side so Harbor will be open to traffic again.

    What agency are you listening to on the scanner? I live nearby and would like to listen in.

      Southwest Precinct SPD officers are on the frequency that our scanner identifies as “Dispatch South” (South Precinct uses it too, which can lead to the occasional confusion on our part because the street grid on the other side of I-5 includes many of the same east-west street names – the officer call signs are different, though, per the sectors, W(illiam) and F(rank) over here …).

    Darrin if you have a iPhone , in the App Store are scanner apps.  One I use has  SPD and fire on the same channel. And sometimes it is offline too.

Sorry, comment time is over.
