    Officers attempted to stop a vehicle in the area of Northwest 54th Street and Northwest 3rd Avenue when the occupants of the vehicle bailed out and fled on foot, police said.

    An officer pursued one of them behind a residence and fired shots at the suspect, who wasn’t struck, police said.

    They said it wasn't clear why the people fled from their vehicle.

    Charges are pending against the suspect who was apprehended, and it doesn't appear that the other occupants of the vehicle will be charged, police said.
