KCSO gives more details on last week’s car chase

The investigation is still ongoing, but deputies say they know the identity of the man involved in the failed car prowl, car chase and shooting.

A simple car prowl turned into a highway car chase and shooting in Enumclaw last week.

On April 24, at approximately 5 p.m., a 31-year-old female from Tacoma was caught breaking into a car near Federation Forest State Park between Enumclaw and Greenwater, said King County Sgt. Ryan Abbott.

The female was caught by the car owners, and she and a male passenger fled south on State Route 169.

The victims pursued, even when the male passenger “fired several shots at them with a handgun,” Abbott said.

The dramatic eight-mile chase ended when the suspects crashed into a tree at the 28300 block of S.E. 424 Street, east of Thunder Mountain Middle School.

The victims of the failed prowl called police to report the incident shortly before the crash.

Both suspects ran out of the car. The female was located in part due to help from a male mowing his lawn at the time, who told police she was hiding in a nearby horse trailer.

She was arrested for burglary as well as two felony warrants.

A K9 unit was called in to track the male suspect, but only a red t-shirt was found.

The King County Sheriff’s Office said April 30 the male suspect has been identified but not found, and the investigation is still ongoing.
