As the vehicle drove by Campolindo High School, one of its occupants threw a gun out of the car, MPD said. Eventually, the car stopped at the intersection of Camino Pablo and Shuey Avenue and three people ran out.
Officers found and arrested two suspects, but a third got away. He was described as a black male, 15-20 years old, with a thin build and wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt.
