Update Tuesday 9 a.m.: A little more info from the SPD Blotter:
On 5/21/12, at approximately 8:30 p.m., officers responded to 105th and Greenwood Av N. to investigate a death. Upon arrival officers contacted the complainant. The complainant stated that he went to check on the 28-year-old man because he had not seen or heard from him in several days.
Upon entering the residence, he found the victim on the kitchen floor deceased. Homicide detectives responded and processed the scene. The King County Medical Examiner responded and took custody of the decedent. This is an open and active investigation and all the information available at this time.
8:40 p.m. Monday: We’re getting reports that someone is dead after an assault with weapons call at 105th & Greenwood. Our tipster Silver tells us that numerous police and medic units are on scene, and that police scanner traffic says one person is dead.
We’ve got a call in to Seattle Police and we’ll update this post as we get more information.
Update 9 p.m.: SPD Spokesperson Det. Renee Witt just told me that it is a suspicious death investigation, because the man was found dead in his kitchen by an apartment manager who had gone to check on him after he hadn’t been seen for a few days.
“Right now we don’t know what we have,” Det. Witt says.
