Three teens were arrested Wednesday after police said the teens led them on a chase that ended in a crash at SE 29th Street and Shields Boulevard in Oklahoma City.

Four people were injured in the crash. Police said the chase started after people started shooting out windows while driving throughout the city with a BB gun.

Police were called at about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday after a report of "shots fired" near an area fast food restaurant.

A short time later, the suspects' vehicle, which had been reported stolen, was spotted in the area of SW 44th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue.

This prompted the pursuit, police said.

"We received multiple calls all around the city, starting in northwest and northeast Oklahoma City of a vehicle being driven by unknown suspects, at the time, shooting out of the vehicle and into businesses and other vehicles and houses," said Oklahoma City police Sgt. Jennifer Titus.

Among those injured in the incident was a pregnant woman, police said.

Robert Locket had the back of his vehicle shot out near SW 59th and Western Avenue.

He thought he heard the mailman.

“It’s pitiful that they have nothing else better to do, if they’re doing drugs or whatever they’re doing to put them in that frame of mind to come and do this kind of damage to people that have nothing to do with them,” said Locket.

Minutes after, several businesses including the Cocina De Mino restaurant in a nearby strip mall were hit. 

The window of a truck in the parking lot was shot clear out.

“They're just lucky that somebody didn't pull out their 45 and shot them,” said Tim Wagner, owner of Cocina De Mino. “I know several of the other owners they do have concealed carry and they keep track of that stuff.”

While nobody was seriously hurt, those involved hope the suspects have learned a big lesson.

“They need to go to work and pay for the damages they've caused which is going to be pretty significant I’m sure,” said Wagner.

An Embark bus was shot as well.

Police are still piecing the evidence together and plan to release more information Thursday.

Officers took two males and a female into custody.
