Suicidal Man in Custody

05-30-19

At 2:14 p.m., we were asked to check on a man who made suicidal threats and lives an apartment complex at 11901 10th Way North. We had reason to believe he had access to a weapon.

He wasn't in his apartment and officers had to search the property and surrounding area for him. In an abundance of caution, we shut down Northbound traffic on MLK St. at 116th Avenue North, as well as the southbound exit (exit #31) off I-275 onto MLK Street.

After our negotiators made contact, we were able to take him into custody safely in the area of 11101 Roosevelt Blvd. N.
