HAMTRAMCK, Mich. (FOX 2) - Warren police have arrested two suspects and are looking for a third person in Hamtramck Wednesday afternoon. A police source said a canine unit is being used in the search.
Video provided by the social media account @MAZIII_313 showed the vehicle pursuit of a black Cadillac Escalade before it ended near Lehman and Conant in Hamtramck. The suspects then got out and ran.
It all started at about 2:30 p.m. when patrolling officers spotted a black Dodge Ram pickup which was linked to several crimes including a shooting last weekend in Warren.
Police started pursuing the truck at Nine Mile and Ryan but the suspect vehicle broke down after blowing a tire and damaging the rim after hitting a curb.
The driver got out and climbed into the Escalade which had two other people inside. And police chased it into Hamtramck where it crashed and came to a stop.
"People (were) picking up their kids from schools and kids out in the neighborhood as it was the end of school," said Captain Charles Rushton, Warren police. "Obviously several lives were in danger for something that could be as simple as a traffic stop.
"(In) this situation these guys were wanted for several felonies but again, it puts everybody in danger."
A witness said that two schools nearby were letting out at the time, which could have made for a much worse situation.
"I heard a crash first down the road," said a nearby business owner. "And then I look down and see them jumping out of the car and then one of them threw his jacket right there out on the balcony."
