1. (Update) Seattle PD, FBI investigating hate crime after transgender person attacked on Capitol Hill

<snip
The FBI has joined in the investigation, which police are classifying as a hate crime, authorities said.

"This is not an isolated incident. This is something that happens to our community frequently," Volz said at a Friday afternoon news conference, "and we won't tolerate it anymore."

Friends took Volz to the emergency room to be treated for cuts and bruises. The suspect used a transgender slur during the assault, investigators said Friday.

"I'm disgusted by this hateful attack," said Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O'Toole in a news release. "I want to assure the victim and the community that the SPD will leverage every resource to identify the suspect and bring him to justice."
