5 Males Arrested in SE Como Neighborhood

I just witnessed the arrest of 5 men, approximante ages 16-18, by the Minneapolis, UofM, Lauderdale and Falcon Heights Police Departments. The situation began when the car carrying the men traveling south on 18th Ave SE pulled into a driveway of the 1000 block of 18th Ave SE, in an attempt to evade the police who were right on their tail. A total of 9 police cars pulled up and the officers exited their vehicles with guns drawn. Each of the males was instructed one-by-one to exit their vehilce and lay on the ground. They were subsequently restrained and detained without incident. It appeared that the officers confiscated a weapon (appeared to be a gun) from the vehicle, however; this is an unsubstantiated statement. All officers conducted themselves in a professional manner.

Updates to come as more information becomes available.
