Police pursuit ends in crash: Five suspects now in custody, accused of stealing SUV

MILWAUKEE -- Five suspects in a stolen SUV were arrested after leading Milwaukee police on a pursuit that ended in a crash in West Milwaukee.

The incident began at about 12:30 p.m. on Monday, July 27th when the victims of the vehicle theft spotted the stolen SUV in the neighborhood near 7th and Burnham. The victims called police while they attempted to follow their vehicle.

While following the vehicle, one of the suspects reportedly pointed a firearm at a victim.

Milwaukee police located the stolen vehicle at 5th and Lincoln and attempted a traffic stop. The SUV fled and officers initiated a pursuit that ended near 46th and Greenfield -- after the SUV collided with another vehicle.

All five suspects, a 21-year-old male, a 16-year-old male, two 16-year-old females, and a 15-year-old female attempted to flee from the scene on foot, but were soon arrested.

As result of the crash, the driver of the other vehicle was hospitalized with serious injuries.

The West Milwaukee Police Department is investigating the crash.  Milwaukee police continue to investigate the suspects’ involvement in other crimes.

This incident is similar to an incident that occurred earlier Monday. Police say shots were fired at the owner of a stolen vehicle by suspects inside the vehicle after the vehicle's owner spotted the vehicle and began following it.
