SWAT Called To Roosevelt After Woman Barricades Herself In Apartment

SPD has shut down NE 65th between 9th and Roosevelt Way and are calling in the SWAT team and negotiators to assist with an apparent standoff.

We’re working to get more info and we’ll update when we do.

Update: We’re told police received a call from a man who said his roommate had trashed their apartment and barricaded herself inside. The woman may have recently been released from jail.

Update x2: Here’s another little update from SPD-

On December 6th at approximately 12:51 p.m. officers responded to the 900 block of NE 65th Street for a report of a domestic disturbance.  The suspect, reportedly an ex-girlfriend of the male victim, was tearing up the victim’s residence.  At some point the suspect threatened to kill the victim.  After the arrival of responding officers, the male victim came outside and is believed to be uninjured. 

The female suspect remains inside the residence and is believed to have access to firearms.  The residence is surrounded and officers are negotiating with the suspect in an attempt to gain her peaceful surrender.

Update x3: Police have taken the woman into custody.
