Police Searching For Suspects After Woman Stabbed In South Park

Seattle police are investigating after a woman was stabbed and left on a South Park street early this morning.

A witness found the victim lying on the sidewalk in the 1000 block of S. Cloverdale Street at about 4:45 and called 911.

Officers arrived at the scene and searched the area but weren’t able to find the suspects.

Before medics transported the woman to Harborview Medical Center, the victim told police she’d been waiting at a bus stop when two women attacked her, stabbed her in the face, shoulders and hands and fled the scene.

Officers were able to gather some information at the scene about the identity of the suspects.

The victim’s condition was not immediately available, but we’ll update this post with more information later today.

When can a Dallas police officer shoot someone?

Officer-involved shooting statistics (Dallas Police Department)

Lately, every Dallas police shooting has earned some intense scrutiny.

And there have been more than usual. This year, Dallas cops have shot 11 men (compared to 12 all last year). Police killed seven of them. Only one man was unarmed — and police say he charged at an officer. And a witness said the officer already had his gun drawn and pointed at the man when he ran at him.

But the unrest over a shooting of an unarmed man by police in Ferguson, Mo., and the Dallas County district attorney’s plan to investigate such shootings independently of the department has cast a bright spotlight on every incident. Protests in Dallas are popping up. Dallas police officials have been all over the news media lately pushing the message that they would have handled the shooting’s aftermath differently.

Now, when is it OK for a Dallas officer to shoot someone? The Dallas Police Department’s general orders state that deadly force is a “last resort.”

“Officers will only use deadly force to protect themselves or another person from imminent death or serious bodily injury,” the policy states.

A few other takeaways from the policy:

– Warning shots are not allowed. If officers are going to fire their gun, they are supposed to shoot it at the suspect with the intent to kill.

– Drawing a gun and shooting a gun are different things. Officers can draw their guns when they believe there is a threat to their life or the lives of others.

– Officers are not supposed to “kill” moving cars. If a car is coming, they’re supposed to try and move out of the car’s way, if possible, rather than standing in front of it and shooting. But if the car is driving at another person and it’s the only way to stop them, then officers can shoot.
