Man Arrested with Stolen Handgun, Outstanding Warrant in City Hall Park

A 43-year-old man was arrested late Friday evening after officers responded to a report of a man with a gun in City Hall Park, located at 3rd and Yesler. Officers arrived at about 11:40 pm, and contacted the male after witnesses pointed him out inside the park.  Officers stopped the individual and observed a handgun sticking out of his jacket pocket.  The man was detained.  A records check showed that the man had an outstanding domestic violence warrant and was a convicted felon.  The loaded gun, a Smith & Wesson .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun was a reported stolen gun from Seattle.  The suspect was arrested and later booked into the King County Jail on the weapons violation and warrant.  Detectives are handling the follow-up investigation.
