The trio was arrested shortly after a pursuit that started on Gettysburg Avenue in Dayton Monday and ended in the 9900 block of Westbrook Road, when the suspects ran from the vehicle, according to a Dayton police report.

Police have not said whether the three suspects are the only people they were looking for in connection to the shooting incident.  It’s also unclear if any of the suspects arrested following the pursuit are believed to be the person responsible for firing at officers.
