Chief O’Toole’s Statement On Mass Shooting In Orlando

The Seattle Police Department offers its sincere condolences to all affected by today’s tragic mass shooting in Orlando.

I have been in communication with senior officials from the FBI and DHS, as well as our state and local law enforcement partners. While there is no information indicating any specific threat to Seattle, residents can expect to see increased police in the community.

As always, we ask that all in our community remain vigilant and contact police if you see something suspicious.
