Incident on UW campus

Posted by on Thu, Jul 4, 2013 at 11:55 PM

Looks like trouble. . . Molotov cocktails are never not trouble. But maybe it's just Independence Day fireworks! Though body armor is also usually not a good sign.

What?!? Really? Molotov cocktails, and body armor? Something, something, I thought my party was off the handle, stop.

A guy was fatally stabbed at 45th last weekend. Wish the stranger had covered that. I work near there and this shit scares me.

The suspect was driving a stolen truck that had in the back a stolen rifle with a scope, stolen shotgun, body armor and multiple Molotov cocktails, said UW Police Chief John Vinson.

However did anyone manage to let these items get stolen from them?

It doesn't make sense. UW is like a ghost town during the summer. There are a hundred places in Seattle that have a higher population density in the summer than the UW campus.

@ 4, maybe they where just camping out there for exactly that reason...

to add: its logical that people after the last years assume that the UW was the intended target but maybe the guy was just laying low there planing to go (or coming from) somewhere else...

@4 I suspect that most of the criminal incidents in the U-district are not perpetrated by the UW students (although sometimes they are victims). So the fact that it is summer just exposes the seamy U-district underbelly that is there year round but sometimes masked by the large number of students.

Denny closed due to a shooter. There's a large police barricade happening. I was rerouted trying to get to my Stewart/Yale stop. Go down Olive bridge.

@2: he wasn't stabbed on 45th. He was stabbed outside J's Market (and jack in the box parking lot area). The spot where the sketchiness happens. If you don't hang out with those folks then you shouldn't be scared.

But maybe you're talking about a different stabbing?

He is anarchist who had big plans well beyond the typical smashy smash. Glad they caught him.
