The suspect vehicle was towed to the evidence garage located in the Shoreline Police Station on N 175th.

According to the King County Sheriff's Office, the victim had offered something for sale online and was meeting the buyer at the Aurora Village parking lot.

The buyer showed up with a couple of friends and instead of buying, two of them got into the victim's car and started physically assaulting him. One suspect had a gun.

Someone saw what was happening and called 911. The suspects got spooked and took off in their vehicle.

A deputy spotted the vehicle and tried to stop it. The suspects did not stop and a short pursuit began, leading to the suspects' vehicle being rammed. One of the suspects had to be tased but all three were arrested at the scene.

My boyfriend witnessed this. The car was being chased by several police cruisers coming east on 175th. The white car made a sudden turn northbound on Meridian and was then rammed by one of the cruisers.
