Two members of the West Precinct Anti-Crime Team (ACT) were injured in an undercover narcotics sting in Downtown Seattle this evening, according to department sources.
Around 8:30pm, the ACT team was conducting a buy-bust narcotics operation near 2nd and Pike when two officers became involved in an altercation with several suspects.
Two officers were injured—one officer apparently sustained a nasty four-inch bone-deep head wound—and were taken to Harborview. Their injuries are not considered life-threatening.
Police arrested three suspects at the scene.
More on this tomorrow.
UPDATE: Reader Corporatemonkey captured footage of one of the arrests at the scene:
