UPDATE: Police, fire response in The Junction

10:38 PM: Police and fire have responded to the 4500 block of 40th SW (and a scene on 38th SW too) for what was initially reported as some kind of assault in which the suspect was stabbed by his alleged victim. A “scenes of violence” SFD callout is now arriving for the person who was stabbed, and there’s a dispatch for the other person too. That’s all we’ve heard so far.

10:55 PM: As also observed by a scanner-listening commenter, this one remains convoluted at best – but the original person who called police apparently knew the person he reportedly stabbed.

11:07 AM SUNDAY: While we still don’t have information on the circumstances, we were able to find out from SFD that the injured person at the 38th scene is a man in his mid-twenties taken to Harborview in stable condition with injuries reported as a stabbing, while from the other scene, a man in his late 20s was taken to a hospital with minor injuries, “reported as assault.”

ADDED MONDAY: Police say this was a domestic-violence incident.

    Listening to the Seattle Fire Scanner: what a mess… What is going on out there… No wonder I hate going out anywhere and stay home all the time…

    About 2 minutes before the sirens, a car sped down 39th about a mile past that location.

    About 25 minutes ago 8 or more SPD cars were speeding north bound on 35th, all turned left at SW Alaska.

    The suspect was stabbed by his alleged victim, if this is the case it sounds like self defense?
