6:38 AM: Thanks for the text. We just went back to Harbor Avenue to check out a different police-incident report. This is near but unrelated to the earlier call. A man broke into a nearby building and so far is refusing to come out.
7:24 AM: Additional emergency responders are being sent to the scene, per scanner, including SWAT, as well as SFD medics. If you can’t tell from our photo, it’s the former Sea-Way Marine site in the 2400 block of Harbor SW.
7:42 AM: Traffic is being blocked off on Harbor in both directions – north/westbound at Spokane, south/eastbound at California, per the scanner – until this is resolved.
9:26 AM: Not resolved yet. Thanks to the texter who sent the photo above. The suspect has been reported to have wielded various items threateningly, including broken glass and a screwdriver. Police continue trying to talk him into surrendering.
9:56 AM: As discussed in comments, the traffic closure is ALL traffic – bike/pedestrian path as well as both directions of the road.
11:26 AM: No change. Police are still trying to talk the man into surrendering. Since this has dragged on so long, we’re launching a second report shortly.
12:00 PM: We’ve launched afternoon coverage here.
