On December 31st at approximately 9:25 a.m. officers responded to a 911 complaint of a domestic disturbance in the 12000 block of 33rd Avenue NE. Shortly after officers arrived on scene the female victim was able to run outside the residence to the safety of officers. She was uninjured.
Responding officers quickly set up containment and attempted to establish contact with the suspect, who is refusing to come outside. Information indicates that the 38-year-old male suspect is alone inside the residence and is believed to be armed with a handgun.
The SWAT team and negotiators are on scene. Negotiators are attempting to get the suspect to surrender peacefully. This remains an on-going incident.
