A 12-year-old boy and 13-year-old boy were arrested after allegedly stealing a car from a driver at gunpoint before leading Seattle police on a chase Feb. 13.

Police officers were in the area of Aurora Avenue North and North 88th Street near the Greenwood neighborhood for reports of two boys walking around with a handgun when they were sent to a nearby carjacking.

A woman said she had just arrived home near North 85th Street and Aurora Avenue North when she was approached by the suspects who tapped on her windows, pointed a gun at her and told her to get out.

One of the suspects fired a shot into the air, she told police - a shell casing was later found at the scene.

The two boys drove off in her Subaru Outback.

Officers were sent to the 12200 block of Phinney Avenue North in the Bitter Lake neighborhood around 9:30 p.m. after a man reported an attempted carjacking at gunpoint. The man's story was similar to the previous victim, where two suspects tapped on his window and demanded his car. He said they both had handguns.

The man refused to give the suspects anything. One of the suspects fired a shot into the air before getting back into the stolen Subaru and driving off.

A shell casing was found at the scene.

Shortly after, Seattle police located the Subaru near North 125th Street and Aurora Avenue North. A pursuit was authorized and the King County Sheriff's Office support helicopter assisted.

Police officers tried to stop the suspects near Wallingford Avenue North and North 82nd Street, but they fled on state Route 99.

The pursuit ended at Seventh Avenue North and Thomas Street.

The boys tried to run and tossed guns during a foot pursuit, according to Seattle police. They were arrested, and both guns were found.

The two faces charges of robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm. The 13-year-old also faces a charge of attempting to elude police. They were booked into the Judge Patricia H. Clark Children and Family Justice Center.
