Wohl said the chaotic string of incidents began just before 5 p.m. with a report of a possibly intoxicated, erratic driver near Tumwater High School.
Tumwater Police spokeswoman Laura Wohl said it all happened about 4:40 p.m. Sunday when officers were alerted to a possible carjacking near a gas station.
The suspect's body remained lying in the parking lot behind yellow police crime scene tape for several hours and police conducting an extensive search of the area for shell casings and other evidence.
A 16-year-old girl was injured, but not seriously. The gunman then circled around to the other side of the auto, and that's when his father made a last-ditch effort to leave and stomped on the gas pedal.
According to authorities, the suspect entered the Walmart Supercenter and opened fire at a display case, without injuring anyone, before leaving the store again to attempt another carjacking in the parking lot.
