How-to list on hostages found at hospital

When the notebook was found, a hostage list was discovered, as well as ways to take hostages and what is needed to do so.

June 12

Assault and kidnapping: At approximately 3:14 a.m. near the 31800 block of Pacific Highway S., officers responded to a report of a male assaulting a female at the Metro Transit Center. Witnesses said they saw the two people leave the area in a dark-colored Ford SUV. Officers did not locate the victim or the vehicle. Officers then received a suspicious report from a woman who claimed her niece had contacted her and said a male had been assaulting her and said she was not free to leave, according to the report. The woman did not give a location. The female later called her aunt and said she was in Federal Way, somewhere on “328th.” Officers eventually located the victim and arrested the suspect after a dispute with a gun occurred at the AM/PM on Pacific Highway South.

Park assault: At approximately 1:07 p.m. near the 36200 block of Enchanted Parkway S., a guest at the park was assaulted by an unknown male. The male fled on foot out of the park and was not able to be located. The male is described as Hispanic, short and bald with a tattoo on his back that said “Last Standing.”

Bullet hole to nowhere: At approximately 10:40 p.m. near the 33000 block of 20th Place SW, a reporting party stated a bullet had entered his home on the second floor in his daughter’s room and then exited. Holes were photographed and the premises was searched but no bullet slugs or casings were found. The family was awake and reported hearing something that sounded like gunshots but thought that it was in the distance.

Hostage list at hospital: At approximately 8:42 p.m. near the 34500 block of 9th Ave. S., a juvenile reportedly left a notebook at a nearby hospital. When the notebook was found, a hostage list was discovered, as well as ways to take hostages and what is needed to do so. There were no list of names in the book. The notebook went on to say the hostage taker should not engage with hostage negotiators, and it also talked about how police respond and how to make guns look fake. The notebook also talked about lying to police about the guns. Officers contacted the youth who said he had a morbid fantasy but would never act on it. He said he was not going to hurt himself or anyone else. Officers also spoke to the child’s stepmother who said her stepson did not have access to weapons and was not a violent person. There is no crime at this time; the report was done for documentation purposes.

Drug overdose: At approximately 12:09 a.m. near the 32500 block of 2nd Ave. SW, police were dispatched to the area in response to a welfare check of a deceased male hanging outside of a vehicle. The witness began CPR and police continued it when they arrived. South King Fire and Rescue also responded and took over CPR. The victim was transported by SKFR for further life-saving measures. Items left on scene suggested this was an overdose.

Assault with a firearm: At approximately 3:36 a.m. near the 33400 block of 22nd Ave. SW, officers heard what they believed to be 10-12 gunshots in the area. An investigation revealed unknown suspects fired approximately 12 rounds into a nearby residence from the street outside. No one was injured. A .22 slug was retrieved from a hallway wall inside the residence.

Assault: At approximately 8:12 a.m. near the 35400 block of Enchanted Parkway S., a woman allegedly stabbed her boyfriend in the hand during an argument in a Lowe’s parking lot. She fled from the scene after stabbing her boyfriend. However, she was contacted nearby and taken into custody.

Robbery with a firearm: At approximately 1:09 p.m. near the 3000 block of S. 288th St., a male reported he was home alone when two unknown suspects entered his apartment, ordered him to the floor at gunpoint and stole several items. The suspects then fled the residence in an unknown direction. A K9 track was conducted but turned up negative results. The suspects were wearing gloves and left no prints.

June 15

Hit and run: At approximately 2:15 p.m. near the 31800 block of Pacific Highway S., officers responded to a hit and run involving one motor vehicle knocking down a light pole. The suspect vehicle was located and the male driver was found slumped over in the driver’s seat. The male was holding a can of aerosol spray in one hand. Officers woke the male up who had signs of impairment. The male’s name was ran through the system and returned with a suspended license. He was arrested and booked into SCORE without incident.

June 16

Harassment: At approximately 2:34 p.m. near the 210 block of SW 319th Lane, the female victim said she received a phone call from another female, who said “Justice for Cameron B**** your life will be destroyed.” The victim said the phone number she received the call from was blocked. The victim also said she has a no-contact order against the other female. The female said she reported the incident to police for information only because she understands a phone call may not be a violation of her no-contact order.
