Police Chase and Capture Armed Suspects

Posted Tuesday April 2nd on the Fullerton Police Department’s Facebook page:

At 5:55 PM, Fullerton Police Dispatch received a call of shots fired in the 500 block of E. Patterson Way. Two males, both wearing ski masks, exited a white vehicle and opened fire at a group of people in the area. The two males then got back into the white vehicle, occupied by an additional male and female, and fled the area.

The suspect vehicle eventually crashed in the area of Highland Ave. and Santa Fe Ave. All four suspects then fled from the suspect vehicle, running westbound near Amerige Park. FPD officers responded to the area and apprehended all four suspects without incident.

Two weapons were located and thankfully there were no reports of injuries. All four suspects were taken to the Fullerton City Jail where they will be booked on various felony charges.
