On March 27, 2020 at 11:57 am, Officers Kevin Perez and Christian Ivanov responded to the 500 block of north Tennessee Avenue for a report of a male waving a handgun around. While responding they observed a car pass them being driven by one of the juvenile males who was wanted. The juvenile also fit the description of the male waving the handgun. The officers attempted to conduct a motor vehicle stop, but the juvenile sped away. The officers pursued the vehicle to the 1300 block of Magellan Avenue. The juvenile driver exited the car and began to run. Officer Ivanov chased the male and watched him throw a fanny pack to the ground. It was quickly recovered by Officer Valmir Loga and contained a loaded handgun. Officer Ivanov was able to apprehend the fleeing male and take him into custody.

After the vehicle stopped, Officer Perez arrested the vehicle’s passenger, Jermaine Daniels, without incident. The vehicle had been reported as stolen.

As a crowd of people began to form in the area, Officers Loga and Jeffrey Hannon observed a second wanted juvenile.
