As officers attempted to stop the vehicle, shots were fired by the suspects inside of the vehicle. Our officers did not fire, but captured the suspects after they fled on foot. I would like to publicly thank and commend our officers for a job well done. Our officers continue to remain proactive and work hard to keep our communities safe. I also want to thank the citizens that came forward and provided our officers with key information to apprehend these violent offenders and take them off the streets. Our department continues to recieve tips from the community and we know that as we continue to work together, we will reduce crime in our city” – Commissioner Michael Harrison
