Seattle Police said officers responded to a call Tuesday of a suspect inside a school, menacing students with a knife. The school was put in lockdown.

SPD reported that officers formed a contact team, went into the school, and found the suspect hiding behind a moveable wall on the building’s third floor.

According to SPD, the contact team held a position at a distance of about 75 feet and placed barriers for shielding. Additional officers were directed to a stair landing below the suspect to limit his access to the remainder of the building.

Investigators said the suspect appeared to be in crisis. Officers were able to safely bring him into custody. The suspect allegedly had two weapons — a large folding knife and a broomstick. The suspect was booked into jail for unlawful use of weapons to intimidate.

SPD also made a referral to the Municipal Mental Health Court due to potential stimulant influence in this case and a long-standing history of substance use and mental health concerns.
