A man stole a woman’s purse at gunpoint in the 2500 block of 196th St. SW. The victims, a 28-year-old woman and 39-year-old man, called 911 then got into a car and began chasing the thieves. Somewhere around the 3300 block of 188th St. SW, the thieves started shooting at the victims’ car.

No one was hurt but at least one bullet hole was found.

About an hour after the incident, police arrested three suspects in Mountlake Terrace — a 24-year-old man and two 19-year-old men. All of them are from Mountlake Terrace. They’re facing charges of first degree robbery and assault.
