The man driving the suspect vehicle turned onto Provost Road, attempting to “elude the officers,” the release said.

Officers removed the man from the vehicle. At that point a woman “lit some clothing on fire along with some gas that was inside the vehicle and fled towards the residence,” a press release said.

One of the suspects then entered a vehicle that belonged to the home. As an officer attempted to stop the vehicle, the officer was drug a short distance. The officer became free and fired on the vehicle, police said.

Additional officers stopped the fleeing a vehicle a short distance away.
