The suspect was arrested Tuesday morning with the help of a police dog after he crashed a car during the pursuit.
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.
