Teens Lead Police on Wild 100 MPH Midnight Chase Across the City

A carload of teenagers who may have fired pot shots at a police officer led police on a wild 100 mph chase from the city's south side to the north side early today, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

It all began at West Military and Somerset on the south side, when an officer reported she had been shot at.

She started pursuing the car packed with six teenagers up Zarzamora to I-35 and north toward downtown.

The SAPD 'Eagle' helicopter and several other police cars joined in the chase, as it wound at high speed east on Fresno, north on Blanco and then west on Basse.

The car then came to a halt at Olympia and Gen. Kruger, and, in a classic case of cowardice, the three young men in the car ran away, leaving three young women to be arrested.

Police on foot and using dog teams searched for the men who skedaddled, but they were not found.

The woman who was identified as the driver will be charged with evading arrest, and charges are possible against the other two females, and the males when they are apprehended.

Police say all suspect in custody are in their late teens.No word on whether any shots were actually fired at the officer, and no officers were hurt.
