Arrested suspect in Pontiac drive-by wore body armor, had AR-15

A drive-by shooting Monday night in Pontiac led to a police chase and the arrest of one of three suspects.

Oakland County Sheriff Deputies arrested one man, dressed in body armor, who is believed to have been involved in the shooting which left a 22-year-old woman wounded in her hip. She is listed in serious but stable condition.

A second possible victim was identified who suffered a gunshot wound, but the 25-year-old has not cooperated with investigators.

Deputies responded to the 600 block of Palmer Drive and found the female victim and a glass storm door riddled with bullet holes. 

A deputy who had been responding to the scene observed the suspect's vehicle, a maroon SUV, driving away from the scene. The deputy activated his lights and siren and the vehicle sped away from him.  

He pursued the vehicle for a short distance before all three men ran from the rolling vehicle and fled on foot. An AR-15 rifle was discovered lying in the back seat of the vehicle along with two semi-automatic handguns.   

One of the K9 units located a suspect a short distance from the suspect vehicle, where he was arrested. The suspect was wearing body armor at the time of the arrest. The two additional suspects were not located.

The victim was transported to McLaren-Oakland Hospital by Paramedics from Star EMS.

Deputies were advised of a possible second gunshot victim who was being treated at Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital. The second victim was uncooperative when questioned.
