On Tuesday, March 13, a high speed police chase that started in Tukwila ended in Auburn after a risky, 30-minute pursuit on slick roads.

Seattle Police says their officers spotted the green Chevy truck around 1:15 p.m.

Seattle Police determined the suspect was not connected to the shooting, but the truck was stolen.

The man hit several other vehicles during the course of the chase, but there were no serious injuries.

Now, investigators are looking into whether or not law enforcement involved went too far in stopping the suspect, according to KIRO 7.

That will depend on whether police violated pursuit policy. The suspect was sought in Seattle for a crime.

Officers tried to stop the driver of the truck, but he took off at a high rate of speed. Factors to end the pursuit include location, road conditions, speed, traffic conditions, and more. The suspect then drove through nearby neighborhoods, including a school zone. It's likely they felt it was justified at the time because officers believed the suspect was involved in a weekend shooting.
