If a terror plot targeting a Seattle military recruiting station had been carried out, hundreds of people could have been hurt or killed.
The processing center on East Marginal Way has about 600 employees. There’s also a daycare center located inside.
Brent Cook picked up his two boys a little early after hearing the news on Thursday. “[I] had a moment of panic. My wife was a little nervous and called me immediately, but saw the news and everything was OK,” Cook said.
