One of those cars was a white Chevy Camaro. Police say a possible suspect may have been driving it and sped away from the scene.

"At the time they started speeding up behind us and we realized that's the same vehicle," said Rendon. "White Camaro with blue racing stripes, we start following it to get a license plate to report to them."
