Stabbing, suicide shooting and Ferndale school lockdown

Stabbing, suicide shooting and Ferndale school lockdown

KGMI Reporting

FERNDALE, Wash. – A stabbing, suicide and school lockdown in Ferndale.

Police say they got a call about the stabbing around the same time they got a call about a gunman and shots fired at Ferndale High School.

It’s unclear if the two calls are connected, but Ferndale Schools Superintendent Linda Quinn says there was no shooting or gunman on any school campus and no students were hurt or ever in danger.

However, all schools were placed on lockdown as a precaution.

Mike Hohnholz says his neighbor showed up across the street from his house with her hands bound and her throat cut.

He was told a man stabbed her at her Patriot Place home.

Hohnholz’s wife rushed to the scene where she found the victim’s children… they were unharmed.

Hohnholz says the suspect took off in the victim’s S-U-V.

Police found and chased the S-U-V… then used a patrol car to cause the vehicle to spin out near the corner of Smith Road and Northwest Avenue.

The suspect shot himself in the head before police could get him out.

He died at Saint Joseph Hospital.

It’s unknown if the suicide shot prompted the call about shots at the school.

The stabbing victim was also taken to St. Joseph hospital.
She’s in stable condition.
