A police pursuit ensued and the suspects fired gunshots at the officers from inside the suspect vehicle, police said.

Officers were able to apprehend one suspect, however the second suspect remains at large, police said.

The taxi driver sustained injuries not considered life-threatening and no police officers were injured.
