• Police: Mother, son arrested after Eastlake officer-involved shooting

    Updated:

    SEATTLE - Seattle police said they have arrested two people, a mother and son, in Sunday's Eastlake officer-involved shooting investigation. 

    Detectives, U.S. marshals and other regional partners arrested a 20-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman on Friday. The man was identified Saturday as Joshua Cameron Brooks; the woman was identified as Wendy Ann Lee.

    On Tuesday, the Seattle Police Department has released new in-car and body-cam video of Sunday night's shooting.

    Police were looking for suspects who tried to run officers down with a car.

    It started with a call about a suspicious vehicle, possibly with a weapon involved, near Yale Avenue East and East Boston Street in the Eastlake neighborhood Sunday night.

    When officers arrived and approached the car, with as many as three people inside, the driver quickly backed up, trying to hit or run over the officers, police said.

    Officers then opened fire, possibly hitting the car, before it sped away.

    People who live in the neighborhood described it as very quiet and safe.

    “It was definitely scary. With such recent news of - we didn't know what was happening. It could've been someone on a rampage. We didn't know. Now, we know it was gunshots, which is terrifying, scary. Right in our neighborhood,” said Luke Dequilettes.

    Neighbors say they heard 10 to 15 gunshots fired.

    SPD is trying to determine if any of the suspects were hit or if they fired back. 

    Police were searching for a black Subaru Impreza with a broken right tail light, shattered driver’s side window and possible bullet damage. 

    At noon Monday, police had surrounded that car at 145th Street Northeast in Shoreline. It was unoccupied.

    As is department policy, the officers involved in the shooting will be placed on paid administrative leave during the investigation.
