Two armed-robbery suspects led police on a pursuit Monday afternoon that ended with a crash and shooting in Winnetka.

Police were in pursuit of a black SUV. Two suspects bailed out on foot at Ingomar Street and Tampa Avenue in Winnetka, leaving the SUV to roll and crash.

At least one suspect fired a gun at a police cruiser. Several bullet holes could be seen in the windshield. One officer sustained a minor injury believed to be from glass fragments.

One suspect was immediately detained, and one weapon was recovered. The other suspect fled into a nearby neighborhood.

After several hours, that second suspect was taken into custody and transported to a hospital after being bitten by a K-9.
