On 10-14-2021 at 1837 hours, the subject called 911 to report she was suicidal and was going to kill herself by jumping out of a window or cutting her wrists. Officers learned via previous reports she had already attempted suicide by cop using knives. We spoke to the subject via phone in an attempt to de-escalate her and not provoke a confrontation. During our phone conversation, she threatened to make us kill her and said she had two machetes she would attack us with. After a few hours of speaking to her, it was determined she was alone in her apartment, did not have access to additional victims and did not want to harm anyone but herself. We provided her with the crisis line information, 911 and offered to give her a ride to Harborview Medical Center via AMR. She refused all of the above. We left the scene so as not to provoke a confrontation and documented the incident. A hazard report was completed, and the CD was notified.

#2021-272528/East Precinct/Third Watch:

On 10-14-2021 at 2152 hours, officers responded to an apartment building for a report of a male outside who was brandishing a gun at a resident in the building. Officers went to contact the resident who was believed to be the victim and obtained his name from the desk agent. Upon knocking at the door, the “victim” asked who it was but did not open the door for police. One officer believed they may have heard a sound similar to a gun being racked but was unsure. An additional officer was reviewing the video of the incident at the desk and called back the contacting officers after observing the footage and realizing the “victim” was a primary aggressor. In the video the “victim” was seen pointing a pistol at another unknown male who was pointing his own pistol back. The “victim” was then seen grabbing the unknown male’s female associate and holding his gun to her head in a classic hostage taking position. The female was then released and both she and the unknown male left and never contacted police. Without the female victim, the only crime established was the known male in his apartment having a full extradition warrant out of California. Full perimeter containment was established. Additional evidence was reviewed to ensure the suspect was still in his apartment before attempting any further action. Prior to containment being established, while the primary officers were still figuring out what had actually occurred, the suspect managed to change his clothes and sneak out of his apartment without being detected. An area check was completed for the warrant suspect and the possible victims, but nobody was located.
