Seattle Police swiftly apprehended two armed carjacking suspects, including a teenager, in Burien after a high-speed chase that spanned several cities.

KIRO 7 shortly after 7:40 p.m. Friday, emergency dispatchers received a report of a carjacking in the 9200 block of 35th Avenue Southwest in White Center.

When officers arrived, the victim told them that their white Audi SUV was stolen at gunpoint by two suspects that arrived in a dark colored Hyundai.

The King County Sheriff’s Guardian One helicopter played a crucial role in tracking the stolen vehicle as it weaved through south Seattle and the Burien region.

Police said two juvenile males were arrested in Burien and then booked into the Judge Patricia H. Clark Children and family Justice Center.

Authorities continue their investigation.
