oh, I think they killed him. Live footage on King 5. Sad.

A friend of mine just texted me that there are a huge amount of cop cars at the SafeCo building. Something about an armed robbery suspect and that she is hearing gun shots.

SWAT units really lit the SUV up with AR-15's......arrest is maybe a early misnomer for dead. F'd up my coffee break to.

when you rob a bank, don't head downtown. head for the hills.

I'm looking out of the SW corner of 3rd & Spring and have a view down Spring between 1st & 2nd.

The bad guy was driving a cherokee and was warned to get out. He was shot through the driver's side window.

When they pulled him out, they did not put him in a body bag, but in a neck brace. The ambulance hasn't left 2nd & Spring yet though.

This is some fucking credulous reporting, Jonah.

Silly robber, your timing to go in drag is all wrong, the pride parade was this past weekend.

I love it when bank robbers wear fabulous costumes!

(As long as nobody dies.)

Stupid fucks should die! These cops are bad shots & should be fired.

@7 - A neck brace? Sounds like some Weekend at Bernies stuff going on.

So that's what's going on Downtown. Everyone here thought it was a national politician getting a blockade to his destination.

Well then, all I can say to this is that running for the water... Downtown, no less... is probably the worst direction to go when running from the cops.

@12 -- Weekend at Bernies-style neck braces imply that the dead-but-hilariously-passed-off-as-alive robber may have been near the waterfront attempting a getaway via a highly-choreographed water skiing sequence.

a dress, wig, and surgical mask wearing bank robber being chased by the cops? sounds like a benny hill sketch or something. were there any guys in gorilla suits running around?

Some crazy stuff, indeed- Thanks for the report, Jonah
