At least three people have been taken into custody in Seattle’s First Hill neighborhood following a barricaded standoff Thursday morning.

Seattle police (SPD) reported the suspects were barricaded inside a building on the 1400 block of Madison Street, where a standoff ensued.

“It was about 5 o’clock this morning I came down,” Abe Abrahamson, a resident of Rise Apartments who witnessed part of the incident, told KIRO 7. “There was blood on the floor of the elevator.”

A victim was inside the apartment complex when a group of men assaulted the victim, according to SPD. It started with one person before the rest of the group joined in. They stole from the victim and then barricaded themselves in a room in the building.

SPD did not say how the victim and group of men were linked. The relationship between them remains unclear, as of this reporting.
