Snoqualmie police are investigating an armed robbery involving a gunshot at a gas station Monday night, followed by a carjacking and another armed robbery in Seattle.

At about 9:45 p.m. Monday night, the Snoqualmie Police Department responded to a report of an armed robbery at the Chevron gas station in the 8000 block of Douglas Avenue.

According to police, a man entered the gas station with a black semi-automatic pistol, fired a single shot into the ceiling and demanded money from the register.

After taking the money, the man fled and got into a black Toyota Camry with a red dealer license plate on the back.

No one was injured.

Shortly after midnight, the same vehicle was involved in a rollover accident on Interstate 405 in Tukwila in which the driver got out of the vehicle and carjacked the driver of a red Lexus who stopped to help.
