Update: talked with SPD. Did you know that Western Washington has the highest rate of bank robberies in the country? We do.
No real explanation of why this bank but naturally SPD and the FBI are investigating.
I think this is unfortunate for schools in that area but given that most robberies involve a weapon, it seems like SPS is being protective until they know the area is secure.
end of update
What's up with this bank at 4700 block of 25th Ave NE? There was yet another shelter-in-place because of bank robbery for Bryant Elementary about two hours ago (and it was lifted fairly quickly). Not good for students or staff.
