Suspect not located after standoff with police at Federal Way business

An employee at the business was involved in an altercation with two subjects, one of whom refused to exit the building.

A suspect involved in a standoff with police at a Federal Way business Saturday morning was not located inside the building following the incident.

At about 10:20 a.m., officers responded to a fight call in the 35500 block of Pacific Highway S. An employee at the business was involved in a physical altercation with two other subjects, but it is unclear what the dispute was about, according to Federal Way police Commander Kurt Schwan. One of the involved parties may have sustained minor injuries as a result of the altercation.

As officers arrived, one of the subjects entered the business and refused to exit. Negotiators and SWAT were on scene assisting the officers, but the suspect was not located inside the building, Schwan said.

The officers will complete their initial reports and forward them to detectives for follow-up.
