Officers arrived at the section of Waterfront Trail between Hollywood Beach and the Red Lion Hotel at about 9:50 p.m. Tuesday after several hotel guests had called 9-1-1 emergency dispatchers, said Port Angeles Deputy Police Chief Brian Smith.
The callers reported an argument between two men on the trail and that one had said he had been stabbed, Smith said.
Police arrived to find Hann with a stab wound, and Horner holding a knife, Smith said. The officers approached Horner with guns drawn, Smith said, and Horner complied with officers’ directions.
