Two officers with the Crime Reduction Unit were on routine patrol when they observed the driver of a tan Chevrolet Suburban commit a traffic violation. The officers attempted to pull over the vehicle, but the driver refused to stop and a short pursuit ensued. The Suburban left the roadway in the 8600 block of Rayson and two Hispanic males inside the vehicle fled on foot. One of the suspects then opened fire on the officers. Neither officer was hit and the suspects managed to get away and remain at large.
