1 dead, 1 critically injured after apparent home invasion in SeaTac

A woman is dead and her brother critically injured after what may have been a home invasion robbery in SeaTac.

According to the King County Sheriff's Office, 911 dispatchers received a call from the male victim around 10:40 a.m. Monday.

"[He] said that he had been stabbed and that his sister was dead and she had been stabbed," said Sgt. Cindi West. "When we arrived we found the male who was very disoriented and had multiple stab wounds."

West said the female victim appeared to be in her 20's.

Before he was transported to Harborview Medical Center, the male victim told detectives two men broke into his apartment in the 3200 Block of South 180th Street and demanded money.

"We believe it's possible that the stabbing actually occurred late last night or early this morning," said Sgt. West.

The male victim remains in critical condition. The investigation is ongoing.
