VIDEO: Suspect Taken Out By Police After Decapitating Woman In Apartment

A knife-wielding man was fatally shot by Seattle police early last Thursday morning.

Seattle, WA – Seattle police responding to a domestic violence call last Thursday arrived to find a decapitated woman’s body on the floor, and quickly came face-to-face with a knife-wielding attacker (video below).

Emergency dispatchers received the call at approximately 3:20 a.m., and heard someone yelling in the background, KIRO reported.

Because of a language barrier, a translator came in and replayed the call to obtain an address for the officers, who were ultimately dispatched to an apartment complex at Midvale Avenue North and Northgate Way five minutes later.

When Seattle police broke down the door to the third-floor apartment, they immediately encountered a decapitated woman’s body lying on the floor, The Seattle Times reported.

According to police, another woman and two children were also in the apartment.

A man in an adjacent room had a large knife clutched in his hand, bodycam footage showed.

“Get down! Get down!” the officers ordered. “Drop the knife!”

The suspect initially complied, and laid down onto his stomach.

“Her head is cut off,” one officer said with a tone of disbelief.

“Oh s--t,” another officer replied. “She’s got her head…cut off.”

The suspect began yelling something, but the officers were unable to understand him due to the language barrier.

They repeatedly ordered him to stay on the ground and begged him not to touch the knife, but the man ultimately stood up and grabbed the knife yet again.

The suspect yelled and waved the knife around, then swung the blade towards the officers.

“The suspect acted aggressively and gave the officers no choice but to fire their weapons to stop this threat,” the Seattle Police Officers Guild (SPOG) said in a statement, according to The Seattle Times.

The officers attempted to render lifesaving aid, but he died at the scene.

The second woman and the two children were uninjured.

The identities of the individuals involved in the encounter have not been released.

The Seattle Police Department has asked the King County Sheriff’s Office to handle the officer-involved shooting investigation.

“Early this morning two of our officers responded to a very dangerous domestic violence incident,” the police guild said in a statement to The Seattle Times. “After forcefully entering the apartment, the officers were faced with a horrific and [grisly] homicide crime scene.”

The situation forced the officers to make a “split-second decision to save the other people in the apartment, including children, as well as protect themselves from the actions of this suspect,” the statement read. “Very simply, these officers risked their lives to save others.”

The SPOG has been criticized for standing behind the officers while the investigation is still ongoing, but guild vice president Rich O’Neill said that the group is an independent organization with the freedom to stand up for whomever it chooses.

I'm sure the left coast SJWs are already whining about him being a victim because he didn't speak English. Seems to me yelling "policia" and pointing guns is pretty universal. Thanks democrats.

Wow reminds me of a call I took my rookie year. Responded to a verbal between son and mom. When I entered the house I found the son hiding in the closet with his mothers head in his hands smashing it on the floor. Found the moms body in the kitchen. Fortunately he responded to commands and I was able to take him into custody. Not something you expect to find on a mother-son verbal call.

I have to ask the question though, usually when someone cuts of someone elses head, they usually have blood on their hands, and other areas as well. Where is the blood on this guy? Just playing devils advocate here, but with as much blood that is on the floor upon them entering, the suspect should at least have it on his pants, hands, all over him!! I don't see any.

Should’ve shot that bastard right off the bat! Learn English when you come to this country. I’m tired of hearing about the language barrier. Only barrier I want to hear about is “The Wall”

Well no English or not, he just killed someone in a gruesome way and probably knows what a police officer is. He complied at first so he knew what was up. Anyone trying to stand up for this POS is insane. Wonder what the status was of the remaining people in the apartment?

I am a native Spaniard and I don't understand a single word he's saying. Not one. Are you sure he is Hispanic? Fuck him very much, anyway, I don't care if he is from Mars. Too bad one of the rounds didn't get him in the nuts. Fucking animal. The level of training of Police Officers never ceases to amaze me, trying everything to arrest this lowlife and firing their weapons only as a last resort. Few of us would excercise such retraint: we would have shot his head off two seconds into the apartment.

No, he's not Hispanic. I would guess he's from one of the Pakistani families that was bought into the Country.

I have no clue to nationality on that guy. He appeared to be Asian to me. That was VERY intense. The officers did a hell of a job trying to get their point across. They were speaking the universal language of pointing guns at him. He knew what they were there for. I'm glad the cops came away physically whole although emotionally, they must be shattered. This is not something you can EVER be prepared to see. I'm praying for the officers. Hang tough guys. Hang tough.

My God the Officers here are victims from not only having to see this but then having to shoot the demon who did this. They better not be given an ounce of crap from anyone.

Good job, officers.

2 women with kids, one decapitated. All asians. Looks like an Indonesian or Philippino Islamist who just committed an honor killing on one of his wives.
