Sunday Memo: Tukwila suspect killed … Snow Monday? … Pot NIMBY

Robbery suspect killed: An armed man was killed by gunfire after Tukwila police responded to a call of a robbery in progress and surrounded a convenience store at about 7:30 p.m. Saturday. An employee of the Cash & Carry store called 911 to report that a masked man armed with a pistol was inside attempting to rob the store. Officers arrived quickly and surrounded the store. As the man came out, still armed with a gun, shots were fired. The suspect was hit by gunfire; no officers or bystanders were injured. Medics declared the man dead at the scene. Involved officers will be on administrative leave until cleared to return to duty.

Snow Monday? The National Weather Service says there is a chance of snow in the Seattle area on Monday night. Whether it comes as snow or rain, it looks like a wet week ahead as the area emerges from several days of temperatures hovering around freezing for daytime highs. Expect highs in the low 40s and nighttime lows in the mid to high 30s throughout the week.

Pot NIMBY: The Redmond Ridge community is rallying this morning at 11 a.m. against plans for a marijuana processing facility on 231st Way Northeast. The gathering will be at the Goddard School, 10611 Redmond Ridge Drive NE, near the county’s large baseball park at the center of a controversial buffer-zone dispute. The group maintains that the pot processor would not meet minimum requirements set by the Washington State Liquor Control Board and would be in a densely populated area dominated by children and seniors. The Redmond council is expected to decide on the facility Monday night.
