Police chase car and 5 suspects in Highland Park

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – Chattanooga Police report that a male suspect fired shots before jumping into a vehicle and fleeing.

That happened around 1 this afternoon.

The driver ditched the vehicle near Union Avenue and Holly Street in Highland Park.

Police say five people jumped out of the car and ran.

4 out of 5 suspects are in custody, and the vehicle is said to be stolen.

A nearby neighbor describes what she saw from her back porch.

Neighbor Emily Daigle told us “I had heard gun shots and sirens a few minutes early but further away. So I wasn’t too concerned and then I started hearing the sirens get closer and then the next thing I know I heard just a bunchof commotion. Some thumps and then I saw two guys running down our alley way just as fast as they could go.”

No injuries were reported.

CPD says all suspects are minors.
