The pursuit of a carjacked vehicle ended with a crash and a shot fired in a busy Southeast neighborhood.
WASHINGTON -- Police chased a stolen car to 11th and K streets in Southeast Monday afternoon.
The car was jacked earlier Monday. Marked cruisers and a homicide detective tailed the car into the neighborhood near the Potomac Gardens apartments, where the vehicle struck a parked car.
Several people were inside the car, and one of them fired a shot, police said. No one was injured.
The officers involved in the chase exercised caution and restraint because there were a lot of people in the area where the car crashed, police said.
Police are interviewing several persons of interest, but no suspects have been identified.
Investigators recovered a gun at the scene.
