Seattle police seize 2 guns in Pioneer Square

SEATTLE — Two handguns were seized by Seattle police on Sunday night after a man asked a couple for a cigarette and they said they didn’t smoke, according to the Seattle police.

Around 9:45 p.m. on Sunday night, a couple were walking out of a parking lot near Occidental Avenue South and South Washington Street when a man approached them and asked for a cigarette.

After the couple told the man they didn’t smoke, the man began yelling, challenged them to a fight, pulled a handgun from his pants and racked the slide.

When police arrived, they contacted the 21-year-old man and found the gun hidden under a vehicle.

Officers also arrested a 24-year-old acquaintance of the man for carrying a concealed firearm without a license.

The man was booked into the King County Jail for felony harassment.

The second man was interviewed and released from the West Precinct after police seized his gun.
