GLENDALE, Ariz. - Multiple suspects are on the run after an officer-involved shooting near 61st Avenue and Glendale on April 18, police said.
Police say no officers were hit, but the condition of the suspects is unknown.
Officials say three to four men in their twenties driving a white Chrysler were meeting with someone who either lived in the neighborhood or was visiting.
"One of the subjects got out of the vehicle went to talk to that person and somewhere along the line, it became a physical altercation," said Sergeant Randy Stewart with Glendale Police.
When officers arrived, the men were in the middle of an active gunfight.
"[The officer] saw an active gun battle in front of him, saw a vehicle flee from the scene, and as that vehicle began to flee, one of the subjects pointed a gun out the window," Stewart said. "That sergeant perceived it as a threat."
The police sergeant involved fired back twice at the suspects in response. Officers pursued the car for several miles until they reached 91st Avenue and Indian School Road, where they got away, citing that the "conditions were not ideal for a pursuit."
The car was found near 69th Avenue and Bethany Home Road, but the suspects have yet to be located.
Police are also investigating another incident in Goodyear where they say a man was taken to a hospital and are working to see if the two incidents are related.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Glendale PD.
