2 arrested after threatening Detroit police with a gun

- Detroit police say two people are in custody after threatening Detroit police officers with a gun Halloween night, and authorities are still looking for a third suspect. 

The incident started with a traffic stop around 9:30 p.m. in the 19000 block of Albion Avenue, which is near E State Fair Avenue and Hoover. Police say an SUV was blocking traffic, prompting their attention. 

Turns out, police say the SUV was stolen. One suspect stayed in the car and two others took off running, police say. 

Police say a 21-year-old pulled a gun out and pointed it at police during the chase. An officer shot at the suspect, who was not struck. 

Police eventually took a 16-year-old into custody, and tracked down the 21-year-old and took him in custody as well. Police are still looking for the third suspect, who they say is also 16. 

The suspect's gun has been recovered by police. 

We're told one officer sustained a minor foot injury during the chase.
