They found an 18-year-old man shot inside a car.

As the suspects fled in a vehicle, Sergeant Colburn fired at it. Officials said they don’t believe they struck anyone, although another officer watched that same car drop off a man with cuts to his face from broken glass.

Sergeant Colburn has no prior officer involved shootings.

At this time, investigators have not been able to locate any shooting victims.
