Eventually, the authorities used a PIT (Pursuit Intervention Technique) maneuver to bring the car to a halt.
Then four teenagers ran out of the car, some of them with guns.
Three teenagers were quickly arrested and found with weapons. Later, another teenager was tracked down and arrested by the K-9 police.
