Stolen Auto/Gun Pointed At Police - 38th Street And Avenue B North

Saskatoon Police have three people in custody following an incident involving a stolen vehicle and a shot gun this morning.

On January 24th a man had reported to police that he had been robbed at gunpoint at a convenience store on 3rd Avenue. The suspect had stolen his 2002 Mazda Protege. At approximately 11:20 a.m., an officer on patrol noticed the Mazda at 38th Street and Avenue B North. He attempted to conduct a traffic stop, however the three suspects inside the vehicle refused to stop and on at least two occasions pointed a shotgun at officer. The suspects evaded police for several blocks before abandoning the car at 38th Street and Avenue N and attempting to flee on foot. Two suspects were caught and immediately arrested and a shotgun was recovered. A canine unit assisted in locating the third suspect hiding under a deck nearby.

Charges are pending against the three. An update will be provided when further information is available.
