For the second time in a week, Seattle police released harrowing footage of an incident involving teenagers armed with guns.

The incident happened on Dec. 7, 2023, in Seattle's Beacon Hill neighborhood.

According to video from a Seattle police officer's dash camera, the suspect flipped over in a stolen car directly in front of an on-duty police officer. Police said there were three juvenile males inside the stolen vehicle at the time of the crash.

The three suspects sustained minor injuries and were evaluated at the scene by the Seattle Fire Department (SFD).

Police recovered a pistol with a 30-round extended magazine from the scene. After further investigation, it was learned that the stolen vehicle was driving on a tire damaged from a spike strip deployment by a different police agency.

One juvenile suspect was identified and released to a family member. Two juveniles were arrested and taken to Seattle Children’s Hospital for medical evaluations.

After being cleared, the two suspects were transported to Judge Patricia H. Clark Children and Family Justice Center and booked for investigation of auto theft and unlawful firearm possession.

Newly-released footage of the incident comes just days after a viral video showing 12 and 13-year-old brothers allegedly leading police on a chase that lasted several miles.

Those boys are now charged with robbery in the first degree, theft of a motor vehicle, attempted robbery, and unlawful possession of a firearm.
