By David Rosen

The Seattle Fire Department and Police Department responded to an Assault with Weapons call on the 4300 block of SW Hudson St around 12:59 pm on Feb 10. A white male in his 40's had a self inflicted gunshot wound to his chest and was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

A member of the Seattle Police Department said, " He called 911, says he was contemplating suicide, then he called back and said I shot myself. Officers were already responding in this direction before he shot himself, there was an open line couldn't establish communication, came through the door and seen an entry wound to the chest."
