VIDEO: Seattle PD Releases Video, New Details in Fatal Shooting of Carjacker

Seattle police released new details late Monday on the man they killed after he led officers on a wild chase through the city on Sunday, firing gunshots at his pursuers and carjacking several vehicles, reports the Seattle Times.

The suspect has been identified by the King County Medical Examiner as Raymond Azevedo, a 35-year-old Pierce County resident who had served time in prison. He reportedly stole three vehicles during the chase that started downtown before winding through the Montlake, Ravenna, and Wedgwood neighborhoods. The chase came to an end after at least 11 officers opened fire on the man and killed him near Northeast 68th Street and 35th Avenue Northeast, in Wedgwood. A total of 12 officers are on paid administrative leave pending an investigation.

Police say they found two guns in the man’s possession, at least one of which was a semiautomatic handgun next to his body.
