SEATTLE — KOMO News obtained dash cam video of a June confrontation between Seattle police and a knife-wielding man with a history of mental illness.
According to court records, a man called 911 several times to report a person outside his home with a large kitchen knife – who police later discovered was the same person, reporting himself.
Video shows the man, who has not been identified due to his mental illness, running toward police with a knife. Once he’s off camera, an officer fires one shot at the man.
According to the report, the man pleaded guilty this week to assault.
