TENINO, Wash. - A suspect was shot and killed by law enforcement following a car chase up through Oregon that ended in Thurston County.
Officials said the situation started in Oregon on Monday morning. Law enforcement tried to stop the vehicle there, but were unsuccessful, so the suspects drove north on I-5 through Lewis County before getting into Thurston County.
Law enforcement from around Thurston County gave chase, and multiple shots were fired from the different departments.
One suspect was shot and killed by law enforcement. It's unclear if he was the driver or a passenger. A second suspect was injured and a civilian was hit in the crossfire, but their injuries are not considered life-threatening.
According to the sheriff's office, authorities at one point blocked the highway from I-5 to SR 507—nearly 10 miles of highway.
The deputies involved have been placed on paid administrative leave per department policy.
