Dashcam video released of chase, deadly shootout with carjacker and Seattle police
Suspect identified by medical examiner as Raymond Azevedo
An armed man who led police on a wild and dangerous chase while carjacking vehicles and opening fire on officers before being killed by police has been identified as 35-year-old Raymond Azevedo, according to the King County Medical Examiner.
His motive in the carjackings and shootout are not yet known.
Seattle police released dashcam video Monday night of the chase.
The crime spree started around 12:30 p.m. Sunday in Seattle's Belltown neighborhood when the suspect, armed with two pistols, ran into a coffee shop at Pike Place Market. A barista at Storyville Coffee saw the man had a gun and called 911.
Police say he then fled to a nearby tattoo parlor, prompting another call to police.

"The guy kicked open the door and I thought he was just being a jerk so I was going to ask him to leave and walked up to him and he pulled two pistols out of his pockets—these two big black guns with chrome tops," said James Sykes at Under the Needle.
He thought he was being robbed but the gunman was looking for an escape and ran out the back door.
After leaving the shop, police say the man stole a red Volkswagen at gunpoint and drove to the Montlake area, where he stole another vehicle at gunpoint at the University of Washington Tennis Center.
KIRO 7 spoke to a family who was at the tennis center for lessons and found themselves face-to-face with the armed man when he ran into the building and demanded car keys.
"The guy bursts through the door and says, 'Give me your keys,' and took out two pistols and waved them around," said Adam Tratt. "I told my kids to run. I went to reach for my keys. He didn't want me reaching in my pocket. I grabbed my keys and I threw them across the room."
The man then took off in Tratt's minivan.
Officers began pursuing the suspect in Montlake, where they reported coming under fire from the fleeing suspect.
The man then drove onto westbound SR 520 and northbound onto Interstate 5 before exiting in the Ravenna neighborhood.
By that time, the man was in a third vehicle, a black Camaro.
Officers caught up with the gunman and exchanged gunfire, killing the man near Northeast 68th Street and 35th Avenue Northeast.
Police said they found two guns in the man's possession. Seattle police are working with the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms to trace the suspect’s handguns.
Dozens of people witnessed the chase and subsequent shootout.
Read their stories here.
As many as 11 officers are believed to have exchanged gunfire with the suspect at two locations during the pursuit.
All officers involved in the shooting will be placed on paid administrative leave per department policy.
Several officers and uninvolved drivers were treated for non-life-threatening injuries from crashes during the incident.
posting vids from Seattle PD, u?
That was cool as shit.
Shit like this just never happens over here.
How do they expect a suspect to listen to anything they command with their fuckin sirens all blaring at the same time? Not that this dude was even trying to hear shit... but it happens all the time. Adrenaline's going for both cop and suspect. They try to keep the situation in check but, with multiple cops screaming stuff like "put your hands up" or "get on the ground" at the same time with loud-as-fuck sirens going off from 10+ sources... it makes a tense situation worse.
Poor bastard must have been confused with all that racket...
I tend to think that a bunch of lit up police cars and cops pointing guns at me makes it pretty clear what I should do but that's just me.
they are just trying out their new toys, no big deal
Or you can not break the law.
Seattle has black people?
Yeah, everyone please misinterpret my posts from now on thanks
