Monday Memo: Guns everywhere … King Felix shines … Great weather

Just this morning a gunman shot a Metro bus driver several times in downtown Seattle. Police subsequently shot the gunman.

A man killed himself over the weekend in an accidental shooting at Yacolt Falls in Clark County. How sad.

A couple more shootings: A 16-year-old kid got shot in the abdomen after allegedly breaking into a man’s home in Wapato on Sunday. The homeowner shot the intruder. The kid’s in serious condition. And in Bremerton, police shot a woman armed with two knives when she advanced on them. It was a domestic call. Her condition wasn’t available.

Finally, a man was arrested at the Greenlake Community Center yesterday after waving a gun and threatening people on the basketball court. He was hauled off by the cops and no one was injured.

King Felix shines in 2-0 shutout of the Brewers.

It’s going to be nice today: In fact, it’s the best Seattle has to offer — mid-70s, sun, no rain in sight through Wednesday and possibly beyond. By the way, have you noticed how much longer it’s staying dark in the morning and how much earlier it’s getting dark in the evening? Oh, yeah, it’s supposed to happen that way.
