A knife wielding man calling himself the Creator was fatally shot in a neighborhood in Seattle around midnight Tuesday, Wednesday morning. The Seattle Times posted a story about the incident.
Per Sgt. Jason Houck with the Seattle Police Department, the incident occurred at a residence in the 13600 block of Third Ave. South. A man at the residence said that his friend knocked on his door around midnight this past Wednesday, June 13.
His friend, frantic, said that someone with a knife was chasing him. After letting his friend in, the resident grabbed his firearm. He exited his home. He went outside to see what was going on.
Almost immediately after exiting his home, a stranger with a knife came rushing towards him. The victim fired a shot into the ground. But, the unknown assailant continued towards the man. The victim rushed back into his house. The victim claims that he barely got back into the house to close the door on the suspect.
That’s when the Creator got angry. He started shouting. He began stabbing at the door with the knife.
Houck said that deputies arrived at the time that the suspect started stabbing the door. Police repeatedly demanded that the suspect drop his weapon and go to the ground. Instead of dropping the weapon, the suspect started towards the police.
The police tried using taser guns on the suspect. The taser guns failed. As the suspect continued towards the police, an unnamed deputy who has been on the force for 2 ½ years, shot the suspect in the stomach area.
Emergency Services transported the suspect to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. The suspect died in the hospital.
Sgt. Houck said that they have no idea who the suspect was. “He had no identification on him,” Houck said. “We have nothing. Nobody in the neighborhood seems to know him.
