Seattle police release chase video of two armed carjackers that ended up on Mercer Island

Seattle police have released video footage of the high-speed chase that began after an armed carjacking of a person at an ATM that led police through city streets and Interstate 90 before ending on Mercer Island.

On April 7 at approximately 1:04 p.m., a 40-year-old man was carjacked at gunpoint at a Chase Bank ATM in the 7100 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Way South and South Myrtle Street in South Seattle. Camera images from the bank and ATM images show that the victim complied with the suspects’ demands and got out of the car.

A pursuit began minutes after South Precinct police officers located the vehicle. Suspects were captured on Seattle PD dashcam driving through 25 mph zones and weaving through busy streets at high speeds, nearly colliding with other vehicles. The pursuit continued on I-90 eastbound before returning to surface streets and ending on Mercer Island, where both suspects were arrested.

Police dashcam video shows a gun being thrown out the passenger side window.

The gun thrown out of the window was recovered by the police.
