Seattle officers shot and killed a suspect at the end of a high-speed vehicle pursuit during which police say the suspect fired on them Monday night.

The incident began around 10 p.m. Monday when two suspects – a man and a woman – robbed the Forever 21 store at Northgate Mall.

As officers responded, they ended up finding the male and female suspects, just west of the mall and the apartment complex. The woman was taken into custody there, but the male suspect sped off in an Audi.

Officers pursued as the man started firing a weapon at them, leading them to Magnuson Park where he slammed through the gate at about 80 mph and crashed near the boat ramp, KOMO TV reports.

The suspect exited the car with a gun, and multiple officers fired at him and struck him, police say.
