According to KIRO News, two people were killed during a pursuit involving Seattle police officers in the Highland Park neighborhood of West Seattle.
The incident began with an armed carjacking shortly before 11 p.m. Wednesday, where three suspects stole a man’s 2002 Honda Accord at gunpoint and then fled.
About 2 a.m., an officer in West Seattle saw the Honda, occupied by one man, near the southwest police precinct and began following it while requesting additional units. When more officers arrived, the officer turned her emergency lights on in an attempt to pull over the Honda.
The driver fled from police at high speed and struck another car driven by a man in West Seattle. The suspect and the other driver both died at the scene.
On Thursday afternoon, Seattle police released dash cam video of the pursuit.
A handgun was recovered from the carjacked Honda. The Seattle Police Department’s Pursuit Review Board will conduct a review of the incident after the investigation is completed.
