BELLEVUE, Wash. — A Bellevue police officer opened fire Wednesday on a man who stole a "bait car," then bore down on two motorcycle officers who were tracking the vehicle along Interstate 405.

The pursuit began at 1:46 p.m. and ended a few minutes later when the car was remotely disabled just off I-405, south of Interstate 90.
