On 06-24-2022 at 1503 hours, an S-DOT Parking Enforcement Officer asked for patrol assistance for a suspect causing a disturbance at an on-viewed collision, adding that he had just placed a gun inside her PEO scooter. Seconds later she announced that the suspect was now assaulting someone. Radio toned out a HELP. Meanwhile, the PEO locked her scooter so the suspect could not access the weapon. The suspect had been attempting to steal the victim’s car keys and trying to take his official UW vehicle because the suspect’s vehicle had become undrivable due to multiple collisions. The victim tried to stop him and was assaulted for it. The suspect stopped assaulting him when SPD arrived, and he was taken into custody without reportable force. The victim sustained apparently minor facial injuries and was sent to hospital for evaluation. The suspect’s loaded gun was recovered from PEO scooter and placed into evidence. The suspect’s ruined vehicle had obvious bullet holes in the driver’s door and the floor was covered with spent and unspent ammunition. It was taken to the SPD Processing Room. The same car had left a trail of occupied (but non-injury) hit & run collisions on Aurora before ending in Fremont. It was learned that it had been stolen during a carjacking with shots fired in Snohomish County. Lynnwood PD detectives came to the North Precinct. With the agreement of SPD Robbery, the suspect was transferred to their custody for booking into Snohomish County Jail for multiple aggravated felonies in their jurisdiction, pending charges for the SPD incident(s).
