The driver fired shots at the officers and sped off. No one was hit.
 
police soon learned the same vehicle was spotted leaving the scene of a home invasion in the 4900 block of 56th Avenue in Bladensburg at about 11:30 a.m.
 
The SUV, a 2004 Black Chevy Tahoe with Maryland tags, was found abandoned in the 2800 block of Otis Street in northeast Washington.
