Federal Way, WA: At around 1:15 a.m., Federal Way police responded to a reported large disturbance in the 1300 block of South 312th Street near Pacific Highway.
When officers arrived, they found one male down in the westbound lanes of south 312th with what appeared to be a stab wound to his left side.
Police immediately called for medical aid and began treating the man's wound while calling for more units and a K-9.
