"I'm just Shannon O 'Donnell. Clear skies right now. 60 degrees in Seattle. News Radio FM 7. 97 Stay connected, stay informed. Good evening at 705 on Kelly And Blier. here's what's happening. The Seattle Fire Department says it has treated a 17 year old boy from minor injuries following what appears to have been a fight at Garfield High School. The school district says the incident involved two students and result is the of a dispute between two families. As a result, Garfield High as well as Washington and Meany Middle schools were placed on lockdown for a time. Separately, police are investigating reports of shots fired in the neighborhood around Garfield. At about that same time, no other injuries have been reported and to this point, no arrests have been made. It is day two of the trial of the three Tacoma police men, Manny Ellis. Ellis was killed in a confrontation with police in 2020. Officers Matthew Collins, Timothy Rankin and Christopher Burbank are charged in that case. Today, video forensics expert Grant Fredericks walked through cell phone video of the incident one frame at a time. Mr. Collins hand is in the area of the fabric and as his hand moves up, the fabric moves up. That's not, there's not much motion blur in, uh, three 20, uh, five 29. The medical examiner ruled Ellis's death a homicide caused by a lack of oxygen due to being physically restrained. Defense attorneys argue drugs and Ellis's system led to his death. The trial is expected to at least two months. Seattle Mayor Bruce Harrell signed two new tourism legislation today that could have a dramatic impact on the city. Northwest News Radio's John Lobertini reports. The new legislation allows Seattle to advertise itself for the first time as a convention destination. Mayor Bruce Harrell in August we saw the highest number of hotel rooms sold downtown since the summer of 2019. The summer of Seattle showed what we're capable of when we host major events successfully like the major league baseball all -star game. 71 hotels are part of the agreement and then there's the brand new two billion dollar Seattle Convention Center. Councilmember Sarah Nelson. This legislation would switch the assessment to a 2 .3 percent of total the per night rate. This is competitive with Portland's and more similar to most cities. The new hotel tax would generate millions but the real payoff might be found in a place like the San Diego area where a convention business generates 1 .2 billion dollars a year. John Lobertini, Northwest News Radio. Jay Governor Inslee was in Pierce County today touring low -income and affordable housing projects. This morning he spoke at the Housing Washington annual conference and pointed to the 1 billion dollar housing investment the legislature passed earlier this year. I proposed a plan to be able to produce 4 billion dollars I think I think that's actually what we need so we're going to have to continue building and making public investment to actually get this job done. The governor was also scheduled to visit an emergency shelter and a complex for affordable housing for seniors. The local arts and culture community would get some extra help with pandemic recovery and continued growth under a new sales tax proposal. Northwest news radio's Ryan Harris breaks it down.

The nearly 777 million dollars that's expected to raise over seven years would provide more access for public schools in the classroom and on student outings, free or price reduced tickets for the public and help expanding or building new facilities. Brian Carter, director of the county's four culture agency which would manage the money says it follows their mission of equity investment. That's the way in which we build a cultural sector that reflects who King County is and will become. Co -sponsor council member Jean Cole Wells says there are potential economic benefits.

Democrat Attorney General Bob Ferguson got into the race less than 24 hours after Governor Inslee announced he wouldn't seek another term. Now, former Republican Congressman Dave Reichhardt has jumped in and GOP strategist Randy Pepple he says has a good chance of winning. The way they win is to keep the focus on issues that favor Republicans and that allow Republicans to reach across the aisle, not just for independents, but also for Democrats. And public safety is that issue. Democratic strategist Kathy Allen agrees. However, the one thing about Dave is pro life and that really sticks in the way that most people are gonna see him.

It was January 22nd, 2020. The shooting at 3rd Avenue in Pine Street lasted 6 seconds, according to court records, but involved at least 24 gunshots. 50 year old Tanya Jackson was killed by the crossfire, a bullet fired by 27 year old William Toliver. Six other people, including a nine year old boy, were injured. Mr Toliver pretty clearly fired the fatal shot that involves negligence rather than intentional senior prosecuting attorney Mary Barbosa told the court a murder charge was reduced to second degree manslaughter because Toliver fired recklessly, not with the intent to kill the standard sentencing range by no means reflects the harm that was suffered in this case. It certainly doesn't reflect the harm to Tanya Jackson, the harm that her family continues to suffer. The 27 year old man received four years in prison for second degree manslaughter, 16 months each for third degree assault and second degree unlawful possession of a firearm.

And a place for people in mental health crisis to get immediate help is coming soon details from northwest news radio's Ryan Harris. Right now says King County executive Dow Constantine, people have no place to go. In a time of crisis, he can get your name on a list and in a few weeks or maybe a few months, you might get a call offering you help. That is utterly unacceptable. But when the new facility to be operated by connections, health solutions of Arizona opens in Kirkland in 2024, the cycle of the 9 8 8 or 9-1-1 call and the crisis response will be complete with a place to go, where people can get stabilization care, a treatment plan within 24 hours and referrals to other services, including housing, governor Jay inslee. If we're going to solve the mental health problem, when these people walk out of the crisis intervention center, they're going to need a roof over their head so they can continue to get the therapy they need to really get well. More than $21.5 million in mostly state funding will help build the facility, but I'm still waiting for an answer to how the care will be paid for.

We have found our partners on the executive side to be very collaborative. New 9-1-1 technology would help read crisis situations and a big increase in dispatcher staffing is also setting the stage.

Flights are grounded in javi airport in Houston, Texas after a small jet went off the runway. The airport officials say the plane landed safely at around 1130 this morning, but slid into the grass between two main runways, no injuries were reported, dozens of flights have been canceled and it is unknown when the ground stop will be lifted. 6 people are dead and a suspect is in custody after a series of shootings in northwest Mississippi. They happen in the town of aka arca butler and take county, which is just south of Memphis. One of the shootings happened at a local store four other victims were found at a home two of them inside and two of them outside. Some federal help is on the way for communities plagued by violence, northwest news radios Ryan Harris says more. The U.S. attorney general Merrick Garland and his Justice Department are poised to help communities like Seattle plagued by gun and other violence, Perry Stein is covering this for The Washington Post and joins us live on the northwest news line Perry, thanks for that. Would you tell us more about the AG's plan and the groups that will receive a pretty big pile of federal money as part of it? Yeah, definitely. Thanks for having me. So as part of recent budget allocation and congressional bills, the Justice Department has been given more than $200 million over 5 years. And with some other allocations, it actually totals closer to 400 million. And their job is to give grants to very local organizations that are known as kind of violence intervention programs. These are programs that often employ violence interrupters very community oriented people whose goal is to connect with high risk individuals who are susceptible perhaps who have been identified as perhaps likely to either commit or be victims of violence and provide them the resources to try to prevent that violence from ever happening. And so this is a strategy that has existed a long time in local communities, but kind of gained momentum and more attention on the federal level after the during the pandemic when crime rise and then also during the racial justice protests when people call for more all either alternatives to policing or more holistic approaches. And this was one of violence interruption was one of those answers. Well, what did AG Garland say about the role of police as cities continue to go all in on reducing violence? Yeah, so to be clear, he didn't talk about this money far as I can tell. It does not, it is not replacing any police budgets. This is what is in addition to this. So he didn't say anything about, you know, we want to do this instead of funding police or anything like that. I mean, the way he framed it in his speech was that he viewed this as complementary to prosecutors to law enforcement and stuff. Yes, and we've had a lot of people here in Washington as we work through police reform. Call on the need to still keep police on the job. So definitely part of that conversation, and we are talking with Perry Stein with The Washington Post, now parry, any concerns this money might start to dry up pretty quickly with Republicans in control of the U.S. House. Yeah, I mean, we don't know what will happen. Now, the first batch of money came through the 250 million over 5 years came through the bipartisan build safer communities act and I'm not sure on that exact title, but that is the act that Congress passed to that included. It was a sweeping legislation that included some gun reforms gun or I should say new gun laws in it. And as part of that, there was the 250 million. And then on top of that, the last two budget cycles, the Congress, which is which at the time was the Democrats controlled both houses, they allocated $50 million extra to DoJ's budget to specifically fund these types of programs. So yeah, you bring up a good point right now that Republicans slightly control the house and we don't know if their priorities will include putting this money back in.

"Sponsored by K two vision RLE. The afternoon news we thank you for joining us our editor Ryan Harris. I'm Rick fanci with Kim shepherd. A Senate hearing today on recent close calls at airports around the country, and last month's failure of the notam system that led to a nationwide ground stop. ABC's Andy field has been keeping close tabs on this one. And in a case of perfect timing, we just had a fourth near miss in Honolulu. Yeah, this is not a good thing. If you know anything about aviation, one of the most important things is to avoid ground incursions is what they call them. That's why they have a whole separate control system just for planes on the ground in major airports so that planes taxing the pilot doesn't have a very good overall view of everything. You can only see what's pretty close to him there and these runways in the systems are fairly big. So you don't make a move on a runway without getting permission from someone sitting high above the runway to make sure no one else is coming in to land on top of you or you're going to crash into them. And that's almost what happened in Honolulu, not to long ago, Boeing's 7 77 united and assessment came within a thousand feet of each other with the larger plane cross the same runway where the cessna was landing. Now, we don't have all the details on this, but this is something that the ground controllers are supposed to absolutely make sure it doesn't happen. I did a story on this a number of years ago that near misses where planes are landing on active runways and they don't see it until the very end where a plane may just taxi onto that runway and they're about to come down crashing right on top of it. They have to rev the engines and go back and go around there. It happens more often than you would think. These are the only ones that have been reported. So that is a very serious problem, which means that there may be a systemic problem that the FAA has to look into. They're going to have a conference next month and then they have set up a special committee to look into this here. One of the big problems with the FAA right now is that they don't have a confirmed director. There's been someone kind of sitting in the wings for quite some time, but the Senate hasn't confirmed him yet. So there is kind of a lack of leadership here. Now, a lot of Republicans are blaming Pete Buttigieg. He's the head of the transportation department, but he's the head of a whole lot of departments not just the FAA. And he doesn't get into the micromanaging. He's not sitting in the control tower doing these things. These are paid professionals who may need some retraining or they may need to change the system a bit. Now, the FAA you mentioned does not have that permanent director, but the president did forward a nomination. So where does that stand? Are they going to get on it? He's the chief executive of Denver international. He was put in last July, but for some reason, hasn't received a confirmation vote. Remember, in the Senate, you need the 60 vote supermajority. It can't just be a simple majority in the Senate, which the Democrats have, I think, two votes. So that's the Republicans why they haven't confirmed them yet. We don't have an answer on that. What about the notam system failure? Did we learn more about that today? It's called notice to airmen. It was a computer system failure that basically tells pilots what the weather's like. We're delays are. We're runways or having problems. That particular computer had a failure. We've had a whole bunch of explanations on it, but the most benign was is that someone pulled the wrong plug at one point and the whole system went down. And that created nationwide ground stops. That's not supposed to happen. And in fact, I can't remember the last time it did happen. So there does seem to be some serious problems in the FAA and they're looking into trying to make sure they're fixed. Look, we take a lot of things in aviation for granted. We also know that there have been tremendous cost cutting across the board in the industry here. Is that causing some of these issues? We don't know yet, but this FAA summit is going to look into all of this and try to get some answers and try to fix them
