A 25-year-old woman died in a stabbing on Capitol Hill early Sunday morning.
Seattle Police has posted a brief on the incident:
Homicide detectives are investigating the fatal stabbing of a 25-year-old female that occurred early Sunday morning at Cal Anderson Park. On Sunday, July 14th at approximately 2:45 am, East Precinct officers were dispatched to report of a stabbing at Cal Anderson Park near East Pine and Nagel Place. Officers arrived and located a 25-year-old female with a stab wound to her chest. Officers performed first aid until they were relieved by Seattle Fire medics. The victim was transported to Harborview Medical Center where she succumbed to her injuries. Homicide detectives responded and assumed responsibility for the follow up investigation. CSI processed the scene. There is no suspect description at this time. This remains an active and on-going investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Seattle Police tip line at (206) 233-5000.
UPDATE 7/15/19: Q13 says family has identified the victim as 25-year-old Rayshauna Webber.
According to East Precinct and Seattle Fire radio reports, the woman was reported stabbed near Cal Anderson and found outside the Rock Box around 2:45 AM. Seattle Police arrived to find the victim on the sidewalk outside the bar at Nagle and Pine. CPR was reportedly underway as confusion at the scene and an extremely busy night for Seattle emergency responders delayed the arrival of units from Seattle Fire.
The victim was transported to Harborview as CPR continued but did not survive, according to East Precinct radio.
The incident happened in the midst of a violent overnight in Seattle as police and emergency responders also were at the scene of a shooting incident involving a large crowd in Lower Queen Anne.
Police were searching for a suspect reported leaving the scene of the Capitol Hill stabbing and were working with a very specific physical description, according to dispatch radio reports. The suspect was described as a white male in his 50s, around 5’8″ to 6′ tall, with a receding hairline and long, black hair in the back, and wearing a burgundy or red v-neck shirt, and jeans at the time of the stabbing. UPDATE: A police spokesperson tells CHS the department has “no useful description” of a suspect at this time.
Witnesses told police they saw the man leaving the scene in a black, four-door sedan last seen headed southbound on 10th Ave.
The Sunday morning homicide marks the second killing along Nagle this year. In March, a 21-year-old was gunned down near the Cal Anderson basketball court. There have been no publicly announced arrests in that investigation.
