Seattle Beaches Have Lifeguards!

This upcoming Saturday June 23 will hopefully bring some sunshine to Seattle, as it marks the opening of several of Seattle’s wading pools and is the first day of summer that lifeguards will head to their posts 7 days a week, (weather permitting).

Lifeguards will be on duty noon-7pm Mondays-Fridays, and 11-am-7pm Saturdays and Sundays beginning this weekend through the 26th of August, at various beaches around the city including Madrona Park BeachEast & West Green Lake Beaches, Magnuson Park Beach, and Pritchard Beach, and through Sept 3rd at Madison ParkMt Baker, Seward Park, and Matthews beaches. We all know when the sun pokes out it’s not surprising to find Seattleites in their shorts and sundresses in 60 degree weather; why not join the masses this summer for some much needed vitamin D at the beach.

What is going on in Seattle!?!?

Breaking News on King5.com, Seattle Police are searching for a gunman who ran away from Cafe Racer in the just east of Green Lake and I-5 and west of Ravenna Park.  Two male victims were killed, and two more men and a woman were taken to Harborview Medical Center.

The suspect is described as a white male, 6 feet 1 inches tall, 30 to 40 years old, very thin with curly, light brown hair.  He was wearing a white and brown plaid shirt.

Roosevelt is on lockdown and Eckstein Middle School and Greenlake Elementary students are bing told to shelter in place.  The public has been encouraged to stay away from the area.

This comes just a week after a Madrona murder, a shooting at Folklife, drive-by shooting in South Seattle, and a shooting death just this morning in Downtown Seattle in an apparent carjacking.
