Two suspected burglars are under arrest in Hanford after police opened fire when they tried to run down officers with a vehicle, police said Thursday.
One suspect, a woman, was grazed by a bullet. She was taken to a hospital where she was treated and released. No other injuries were reported.
About 5 a.m., police received a report of a prowler in the area of Greenfield Avenue and Williams Street and learned power to a home had been cut off.
Police saw a man leaving the area holding a gun. He drove toward officers at a high rate of speed, Police Chief Parker Sever said.
Officers opened fire and the car sped off. Officers lost sight of the car, found it again and stopped it by crashing a squad car into it.
The suspects fled and were apprehended, police said. Their names will be released later Thursday.
Police found what they believe is the firearm — an Airsoft replica of a Smith & Wesson. They also found property in the car that they believe was stolen.
