One suspect pulled a handgun and fired a shot at the woman, missing her. Officers responded and immediately broadcast the description of the two malesuspects. Officers spotted the suspects at Northpoint and Hyde streets and told them to stop at gunpoint. The suspects refused to comply and instead ran away on foot, with officers in pursuit. One suspect slowed down and pulled a .40 caliber handgun from his waistband. The gun flew out of the suspect’s hand and hit a scaffold as the officers moved in to restrain him and recover the gun. Both suspects were identified and booked.
