The vehicle was located in the 3500 block of Potee Road, where the stolen vehicle then attempted to flee, striking a police vehicle in the process. No injuries were reported as a result of the collision. After the collision, the two occupants got out of the Honda and ran. After a brief foot pursuit, both suspects, who are 16-year-old juveniles, were taken into custody. One was found to be in possession of approximately 40 grams of suspected marijuana. The other was found to be in possession of approximately 10 grams of suspected marijuana. A Bersa .380 caliber semi-automatic pistol, a Springfield 9mm semi-automatic pistol, and a Ruger .22 caliber LR rifle were recovered from the stolen vehicle. A canvas of the neighborhood where the gunshots were fired revealed a residence in the 300 block of Margate Drive was damaged from a projectile. Several spent shell casings were found on the roadway.
