Armed man arrested after threatening to shoot up Northgate clinic, mall

Seattle police arrested an armed man yesterday after he threatened to open fire at a psychiatric clinic and nearby Northgate Mall.

Staff at the clinic in Northgate said the man arrived for an appointment at around 2:30 p.m. and began threatening to shoot people inside the building and at the mall. The 51-year-old then raised his shirt to reveal an empty holster on his hip, police said.

The man left the building and the clinic staff called 911 and locked down the building.

Officers went to the man’s apartment complex in Kenmore where they found him in the parking lot. When police asked if he had any weapons, the man said, “yes, a 9 mm,” and indicated that he had a handgun in a holster on his hip.

Officers disarmed the man and took him into custody without incident.  He was booked into the King County Jail for investigation of felony harassment.
