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.
From Reddit.com: "For those who want some context... This guy began his carjacking spree in downtown Seattle. He continued north to University of Washington where he crashed the first car. He set out on foot, entering the UW Tennis Center. I met him in the lobby where he pulled his guns on me (my kids, five other adults) and demanded keys. He took my car, before trading it out for the Camaro... Shortly thereafter, the chase footage begins."
The suspect carjacked at least two vehicles, fired at pursuing police and careened into multiple vehicles, said Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole.
His motive in the carjackings and shootout are not yet known.
Added: Police said Azevedo pulled out two hand guns at several downtown businesses, carjacked three vehicles from drivers and opened fire on officers before the fatal shootout at Northeast 68th Street and 35th Avenue Northeast in Seattle's Wedgewood neighborhood.
Azevedo has been convicted of ten felonies, including eluding police, unlawful possession of a firearm and stealing a car. His rap sheet also includes ten gross misdemeanors, including driving under the influence and six more misdemeanors.
