On 5/30/22, at around 1:32 p.m., officers responded to the area Saviers Rd. and Iris St. regarding a report of shots fired. Officers on scene located a shell casing but no shooting victim.
Officers remained on scene investigating the incident, canvassing the area, and obtained information regarding the possible suspects involved. About two hours later, at around 3:32 p.m., a caller reported the possible suspects from the earlier shooting were in area of the 2000 block of Saviers Rd.
The officers were still in the area conducting their investigation, responded to the location, and observed three suspects matching the descriptions from the earlier call. As the officers attempted to detain the three individuals, all three of them fled on foot and officers gave chase.
During the foot pursuit, one of the suspects, later identified as suspect Angel Tejada (age 25), tossed a loaded 9mm handgun onto the roof in the 100 block of W. Iris St. Officers on scene established a perimeter, conducted a yard search, and located suspect Tejada, along with a juvenile, in the north alley in the 100 block of W. Iris St.
During a search of Tejada, officers found him in possession of an empty holster in his waistband. Tejada was arrested for two felony charges including carrying a loaded concealed firearm in public and carrying a loaded firearm not registered to him.
The second suspect, a juvenile, was arrested for the misdemeanor charge of obstructing the duties of officers by running from them. The third suspect that fled from officers eluded capture. An investigation is continuing.
