Lakewood Police arrested at least five suspects and seized AK-47-like guns Tuesday night.
Neighbors say a black GMC Denali sped down 111th Street Southwest and stopped at a house near Freiday Street Southwest at about 8:30 p.m. The people inside the vehicle jumped out, pointing the rifles and screaming at an unknown person or group of people at the house, and a bystander called 911. It is not known what prompted the incident.
No gunshots were reported.
Lakewood Police contained the neighborhood and a Washington State Patrol plane was called out to search for more possible suspects, Lakewood Lt. Heidi Hoffman said. St. Clare Hospital was locked down and officers stood watch on top of a nearby parking garage, watching railroad tracks where a suspect reportedly ran.
As of about 10:30 p.m., no additional arrests were made. Officers searched the house and a police dog searched for a weapon, but nothing was found.
“We are trying to figure out who’s who,” Hoffman said.
