An SUV crashed into a Liberty City church building after a Miami police officer attempted to stop the driver Tuesday morning.

When the driver of the white BMW SUV attempted to flee, the car crashed into a building owned by Mount Sinai Missionary Baptist Church at 7th Avenue and 46th Street at 11:20 a.m.

No injuries have been reported, according to the City of Miami Police Department.

The occupants of the BMW fled on foot, and at least one was armed with a handgun, MPD said.

Miami police recovered three firearms and took three suspects into custody. Driver Davontae Bobby McCrae, passenger Berge Orozco, and passenger Ahman Trevon Lee all face charges of resisting an officer without violence and carrying a concealed firearm.

McCrae faces additional charges of fleeing and eluding and leaving the scene of an accident, and Lee was also charged with third-degree grand theft of a firearm.

Before the crash, police said the driver blew through a red light and hit another car.

Surveillance video showed the BMW drive off the road, through a front yard, and then right into the building.
