Police said a robbery at a Bellevue Square parking garage led to two carjackings and a shooting before the suspect was arrested.

It all began with a reported purse snatching in Bellevue.

After firing two rounds, the suspect fled the scene in a stolen BMW and drove across 520 to Seattle.

He dumped the car at a Starbucks on Eastlake near Lynn Street.

Police say he ran to a nearby apartment building garage, shot the owner of an SUV in the leg, and took off.

That’s when officers were called to the 2300 block of Eastlake Ave. East around 1 p.m.

They found a 38-year-old man with a gunshot to his lower leg.

The victim told officers an unidentified man had stolen his car and shot him before fleeing.

“I saw the Cherokee coming down the streets. It hit the cones and they almost hit me,” an eyewitness told KIRO Newsradio. “I had to help pick up the cones and I thought it was a stolen car for sure.”

While investigating this car jacking, police discovered that the suspect was also wanted in an earlier armed carjacking in Bellevue.

They were able to find the man but the investigation continues.
