Police say the incident happened shortly after midnight near Barstow and Chestnut. Officers saw a car that was illegally parked. When police approached the car, they say the driver sped away -- eventually driving onto Fresno State property and crashing into the Farm Market.

Officers found two people in the vehicle, one of which they say is a gang member. "Our gang unit is aware of who he is but we're not releasing his name just yet, in case he's related to something else that's going on in the area," said Eric Hodge with the Fresno Police Department.

Authorities say they found a pistol in the vehicle but they're not sure why the suspect had it. Police say there is a lot of damage to the property but no one was seriously injured, including the passenger of the vehicle.
