Police arrest two in St. Petersburg shooting

Two people were arrested in connection with a shooting early Monday after leading police on a brief chase, officials said.

Police believe the two suspects, who were not immediately identified, shot someone on the 1400 block of 20th Avenue S early Monday morning.

The victim was taken to Bayfront Medical Center with gunshot wounds.

The pair of suspects fled from officers in a black sedan that they ultimately crashed on 22nd Avenue N, near the I-275 ramp, police said.

Then, police said, they ran.

A five-block perimeter was set up as police searched for the duo, closing all westbound lanes of 22nd Avenue N for about an hour, according to Bay News 9.

The two suspects were arrested just before 5 a.m.

An investigation is continuing.
