VIDEO: Washington Officers Shoot, Kill Murder Suspect at End of High-Speed Chase

An officer-involved shooting that followed a high-speed chase on Interstate 5 is being investigated Saturday, Lakewood PD said.

Officers started pursuing a vehicle tied to an earlier homicide at University Place Care Center at 5500 Bridgeport Way. Pierce County Sheriff's Detective Ed Troyer said a man, who was later identified as 41-year-old Marcos Perea, walked into the aftercare center and fatally shot his estranged girlfriend who worked at the facility shortly after 6 a.m.

More than a dozen police cruisers chased the suspect car on southbound I-5. Detective Troyer said the suspect shot at officers at least five times as they chased his vehicle.

The suspect drove to Thurston County, turned around, and then headed northbound on I-5, where driver Mary-Colleen Foley watched the events unfold.

The high-speed chase ended after a PIT maneuver and spike strips were used. After striking the spike strips, the suspect's car spun out, leaving it disabled near an exit for Tillicum.

The suspect got out of the car and took cover behind it.

According to Detective Troyer, the suspect first fired at officers, and was fatally shot when officers returned fire.

Lieutenant Chris Lawler told KOMO TV 12 officers shot at the suspect: Six Lakewood police, five Pierce County Sheriff's Officers, and one Steilacoom officer.
