No bystanders or officers suffered significant injuries in the events on Sunday afternoon, which began when workers at a Pike Place Market coffee shop reported a man with a gun.

Police said the 35-year-old carjacker held several businesses at gunpoint before fleeing from a tattoo shop and hijacking a Volkswagen.

He stole another vehicle at a car rental business and led police on a 70-mph chase through north Seattle before officers slammed into the Camaro head-on.

About a dozen officers fired shots.
