Seattle’s First Homicide of 2023

@SeattlePD wrapped presser at @DESCSeattle Canaday House. Police say female resident killed by a man who was eventually arrested. #DESC properties continue to deal with high rates of complaints and 911 calls.

On Going Problems

@DESCSeattle‘s Canaday House is one of several “housing first” projects in #Seattle. But places like The Morrison, Lyon Building, and Clement Place deal with rash of neighbor complaints about drug use and other issues spilling into streets.
