Officers from the Minneapolis Police Department’s 3rd Precinct were on routine patrol when they observed a vehicle matching the description of a wanted vehicle, possibly used in an incident the previous evening where a person, from that vehicle, fired multiple shots into a residence.
The officer activated the emergency lights to pull the vehicle over. The driver attempted to elude the officers and, due to the number of squads in the area, the driver pulled over.
Officers observed narcotics in plain view and a handgun was recovered from the car. The origin of the gun is being researched.
Two juveniles were booked into the Hennepin County Juvenile Detention Center.
