— A third person has been arrested in connection with an April police chase that ended in a wreck outside Duke University Hospital.

Durham police said officers responded to a shooting call in the 3800 block of Dearborn Drive on April 27 after shots were fired into an occupied apartment by several men in a sliver Honda Accord. Nobody inside the apartment was injured but the apartment and a vehicle parked outside sustained damage.

Police said an officer attempted to stop the Honda a short while later, after spotting it on North Roxboro Street, and a chase ensued.

Four people fled the car and shots were fired at two officers, who were not injured.
