Also happening off West Seattle: Drill involving state ferry

(Added: WSF photo)

In addition to everything else we’ve been covering this past hour-plus, we’re getting questions about an alarming-looking situation involving a Washington State Ferry and other boats. Here’s the explanation from WSF:

Federal, state and local agencies are scheduled to hold an active-shooter drill on board the M/V Kittitas without passengers while underway in Puget Sound Monday afternoon. Community members or waterway users may see increased maritime activity around the ferry during afternoon hours.

    Good that they are aware of the likeliness and train for it. Sad they have too…

      Have you seen how angry people get when there’s line cutting?!

        I don’t take the ferry’s regularly but seen the news when stuff like that happens. I think a mass shooting will be more a planned attack like a school shooting than a random guy that gets pissed off. It’s an ideal environment since its target rich and there is nowhere to run or hide… Hopefully the training done will help the day it happens.

        Watched two dumbasses nearly duke it out while in line for the foot ferry after the Hawks game. People need to relax and also NOT feel entitled. And no one likes a line cutter.

Sorry, comment time is over.
