Two arrested after police pursuit, gunshots in Sacramento County


A man and woman were taken into custody after gunshots were fired during a police pursuit this morning in Sacramento County.

The incident began about 8:10 a.m. in the Arden Arcade area when police tried to pull over the driver of a suspected stolen pickup.

Officers followed the suspects to a neighborhood near Howe Avenue and Highway 50 where gunshots rang out, although a California Highway Patrol spokeswoman said that it was unclear if officers fired or if the suspects in the pickup fired a weapon. The spokeswoman also said the pickup came dangerously close to ramming officers.

Officers then chased the suspect vehicle to the South area. Near French and Gerber roads, the suspects in the pickup ran from officers.

Eventually, after nearly two hours of searching, both a man and a woman were taken into custody. Their names were not immediately available.
