Looks like mostly a peaceful night on Capitol Hill. Only two incidents we’re checking out — unsure of the severity of either.
First, there was a 911 callout to 321 Broadway E with report of a fire in the building around 2:30a. That’s the location of Vivace’s walk-up stand (oh, no, not the Vivace walk-up stand!) and a biz called The Hair Connection. No info from SFD yet and haven’t been by so don’t know if anybody was hurt or if there is damage.
See comments below. No obvious damage. Will need to find out what the medic response was for.
Second, is even lighter on details. Twitter report of a large police response on the Hill around 3a. So, yes, it’s one person but we are seeing an assault with weapons incident in the 911 logs around Seattle University at that time so we’ll continue to look into it.
Central District News has details on the Jefferson incident. Turns out, it was a false alarm but caused a massive response because the 911 caller said that an officer had been shot:
A caller to 911 had reported shots fired and that a police officer had been hit in the 1200 block of E. Jefferson. This started a large police and medic response, but after investigation they found that it was a false report. It’s not immediately clear if anyone will face charges for the waste of manpower.
