Reckless driving, hit and run, stolen gun in Lake City

On March 7th, at approximately 2:30 AM, a North Precinct officer was on routine patrol when she observed a white 2000 Cadillac driving at a high rate of speed westbound on NE 75th Street.  The officer broadcast the information about the vehicle, and approximately one minute later officers located that vehicle crashed into the side of a house in the 6500 Block of 16th Avenue NE.  Officers quickly contained the area and a K-9 responded to the scene.  The K-9 was able to track and locate three of the five suspects from the vehicle.  They were taken into custody.  A fourth suspect was located walking away from the scene on NE 65th and was also taken into custody.  A fifth suspect is still at large. Officers recovered a stolen handgun inside the vehicle.  One of the suspects, a 23 year old male, was later booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of VUFA and Hit and Run.  The other two suspects, both 21 year old females, were interviewed and released from the precinct.  The fourth suspect, a 19 year old female, was transported to the hospital  for injuries sustained during the K-9 track.
