EVERETT, Wash. —

 Police arrested the driver of a stolen truck who fled from police from Marysville to Everett and fired shots at officers shortly before noon Monday.

Officers said the pursuit began when officers tried to stop a full size pickup truck in the south end of Marysville that did not have license plates.

Instead of stopping, the driver fled.  The chase entered Everett via State Route 529.

During the chase, the driver hit a parked car in Everett at 14th and Hoyt Avenue, causing his truck to become disabled.

The man exited the truck and began to run.  Police said he fired at officers but they did not return the gunfire.

Officers from Marysville, Everett, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office and Washington State Patrol set up a perimeter and used a K-9 to track the fleeing man.

The 30-year-old Snohomish County man was found and taken into custody.

Police later learned the pickup truck had been stolen earlier in the day.

 Video from Chopper 7 showed a man being taken into custody and a black pickup that was partially parked on the curb with its driver's side door was open.
