9/8/2004: Police said a man called 911 from a pay phone outside a Northgate convenience store to report a killing at an apartment. Police set up a perimeter around the apartment building. Two North Precinct officers parked near the building noticed a man walking rapidly toward them. They attempted to talk to him but quickly realized he was carrying a knife in each hand. The officers ordered the man to stop and drop the knives, but he continued to rush toward them. When he was about 10 feet away, one officer fired a shot killing him. http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/archive/?date=20040909&slug=shooting09m
