Police are investigating after a reported physical altercation escalated into a shooting and vehicle pursuit over the weekend.
The suspects, who were seen driving a newer, white Chrysler 300, are still at large. Police are unsure if there are three or four suspects; however, they are described as being men in their 20s and having a darker complexion.
According to Sgt. Randy Stewart, a spokesperson for the Glendale Police Department, officers responded to the area of 61st and Glendale avenues in response to a shots-fired call just before 1:30 p.m. April 18.
Witnesses told officers that the shooting began when two men got into a physical fight and others inside the car escalated the situation.
The responding sergeant discovered a shooting in progress, but the suspects, who were inside the vehicle, fled the scene upon his arrival.
Stewart said the responding sergeant fired at least two rounds toward the vehicle after one suspect pointed a gun out of the window.
Other officers began pursuit, later discovering the vehicle at the 6900 block of Bethany Home Road and following it to the area of 91st Avenue and Indian School Road, where they lost track of the suspects.
No officers were injured, nor was anyone else injured at the scene of the shooting. Police are unsure if any of the suspects inside the vehicle were hit by the sergeant’s rounds, Stewart said.
An alert was put out for local hospitals to keep an eye out for anyone with a gunshot injury. That afternoon, someone showed up at a hospital with a nonlife-threatening gunshot wound, though detectives are investigating involvement.
