Standoff in Seattle ends; suspect not in apartment
Monday, January 30, 2012
SEATTLE (AP) -- A standoff at a north Seattle apartment building has ended.
Police say a man who threatened a taxi driver with a gun left the scene and has not been located. Officers did take a woman into custody.
A SWAT team had surrounded the building after an incident about 4 a.m. Tuesday.
The cab driver had given the man's girlfriend a ride, but she didn't have any money. She left her coat and went inside to get the $37 fare.
The taxi driver says her boyfriend came out with a gun, instead of money, and took the coat.
The driver was not hurt.
