The pursuit of a man believed to be carrying a gun forced the temporary lockdown of the South Seattle College.

King County sheriff’s spokeswoman Sgt. Cindi West says a deputy was in his car Tuesday morning with the windows rolled down when he heard the sound of a gunshot in the White Center neighborhood of Seattle.

The deputy began following a suspicious vehicle and the driver took off. The pursuit lasted about a minute before the driver crashed the vehicle and ran off.

A police dog found the suspect about four blocks from the crash site.

The man was treated at the scene while a bomb dog searched the vehicle for evidence.

During the pursuit, officials locked down the college for safety. It has since been reopened.
