    Crackerjack reporting, Seattle Times! = The stabbing victim may or may not be inside or outside of the apartment building, and she is presumed to possibly be either a woman or a man, and either phoned 911 herself or if not then someone else did, and a hostage situation may still be underway, either that or she was already rushed to the hospital a couple hours ago. Oh, and the wounds were self-inflicted? So she held herself hostage outside by the pay phones, then made it back into the building, then… ???!?! “Details are sketchy.”

    For the interested, that’s pretty much the address for the police station, too.
