Rolon said the teens shot at the police officers while they sat inside their car near the intersection of Jacobs Place and South Lakeland Avenue.

He said neither officer was injured.


Rolon said the officers fired their weapons from the inside of the car, injuring at least one of the teens. He said the injured teen was taken into custody and is expected to be OK.

Rolon said the second suspect was taken into custody just before 3:30 p.m. uninjured. It is unknown if the other teenager who is still sought was hit by the gunfire. But he said the teen is believed to be armed and dangerous.
