Friday Memo: $3M settlement … Body bound & gagged … Mariners fireworks

$3 million settlement: In February last year, a King County sheriff’s deputy and a DOC officer shot a man 16 times while he was in bed, unarmed. They had the wrong man. King County has now settled, but the claim against the DOC remains. The victim is permanently disabled, his attorneys say.

Body found bound and gagged: The man’s body was found in the the Spokane River by a fisherman under the Spokane Falls Boulevard bridge. An autopsy is planned. Identity to be determined.

Fireworks at Safeco: If the Mariners don’t spark your interest, perhaps the planned 15-minutes of fireworks at Safeco Field today will get your attention. More than 1,000 charges are set to go off after the M’s play Chicago.

Are you ready for some record-breaking heat? Forecasts calling for temperatures in the upper 80s, low 90s into next week ain’t too shabby. Remember, though, if you plan to play in the water somewhere, be careful.

Flight diverted: An electrical odor caused a flight from San Francisco bound for Munich to put down at Sea-Tac overnight due to the smell. Firefighters didn’t find the source, but just to be safe, the plane landed here.
