2 schools under lockdown following stabbing at Federal Way park

Two South King County schools are on lockdown after a man called 911 to report he had been stabbed.

Sheriff’s spokesman Charlie Akers said that deputies were called just after 11:30 a.m. to Camelot Park, 294 45th Place South, for a report of a man who had suffered knife wounds. The 22-year-old victim apparently dialed 911, saying he had been stabbed.

After deputies arrived he changed his story and claimed that he had fallen on a knife, Akers said.

The case is under investigation.

Camelot Elementary School and Thomas Jefferson High School are both on lockdown, Akers said.
