The Seattle Police Department responded recently (December 6, 2015) to multiple calls of a suspicious man in several businesses. The male was described as sweating profusely and acting nervous by the business’ staff. The man ultimately brandished firearms at multiple locations before he carjacked a Volkswagen and began a series of carjackings at gunpoint.
Seattle Police located the suspect in his third carjacked vehicle, a Chevy Camaro, and pursed even as he began firing at them. After a brief high-speed pursuit, at one point in opposing lanes of traffic, the officers ultimately forcibly rammed the Camaro to stop the pursuit. Not finished yet, the suspect attempted to maneuver his vehicle to ram police or escape, and was fatally shot to death by the officers. Police are still trying to figure out the motive and background of the 35-year old felon, but there are some learning points that can benefit officers confronted with similar situations.
