Around 9:43 a.m. Monday morning (Dec. 5) we got the following email from BTB Reader Diana Holman:
FYI, there’s a helicopter swirling overhead…around 1st Ave SW and 128th…near Puget Sound Park, and probably over 509 as well…send the media!
We then contacted Cindi West, Public Information Officer for the King County Sheriff’s Office, who told us that the police chopper was on scene because of a hit and run at that location.
“A small Ford pickup hit a Volkswagen, then took off,” West said. “The Volkswagen owner followed the pickup, which had two occupants in it. These suspects then stopped the truck and fled on foot. They were shortly apprehended in a shed near the 13200 block of 4th Ave SW.”
The hit-and-run happened around 9:05 a.m. Monday morning near the intersection of 1st Ave South and S/SW 128th (map below).
There were no injuries, and police are still investigating.
