The U.S. Marshals Pacific Northwest Fugitive Apprehension Task Force arrested Lorenzo Pratt in Portland on Tuesday, in a park by the waterfront.

Seattle police say Lorenzo Pratt, a.k.a ‘Chosen, is a convicted felon who is considered extremely dangerous after being accused of pointing a gun at a woman and her daughter.

Detectives say the victims were driving on a narrow street off of E. Yesler Way when another car approached them. As they slowly passed the car, Pratt allegedly pointed a gun at them.

“Why this particular victim, we don’t know. But, this guy’s dangerous,” says Ret. Det. Myrle Carner with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound. “If he points a gun at random, what’s to say the next time he pulls the trigger. This guy’s going to hurt somebody if we don’t get him into custody real soon.”

Pratt has a $275,000 warrant for his arrest.

Detectives say he frequents Kent, Auburn and Seattle’s Central District.
