An overnight chase ended at an apartment complex along Northwest Expressway and Wilshire Boulevard.

Oklahoma City police said they received a call around 11 p.m. Thursday regarding several armed robberies in southwest OKC.

“Most of these victims were sitting in vehicles in that area, and so, the suspects were going up to them and holding them at gunpoint while they rob them of whatever belongings and cash they have,” Oklahoma City Police Department Captain Valerie Littlejohn said.

Police said they were able to find a car that matched the vehicle's description. They attempted to make a traffic stop when the vehicle sped off, starting the chase.  

“The vehicle ended up crashing and all the suspects fled from that vehicle,” Littlejohn said.

The car crashed near an apartment complex on Northwest Expressway and Wilshire. K-9 units and Air One were looking for the suspects.

Some neighbors told News 9 that they saw the suspects run by.

“Anytime that you have people going out and robbing at gunpoint, there's always safety issues. Be aware of your surroundings and make sure that you're paying attention at any time,” Littlejohn said.

No suspects were found, but officers searched their car and found shell casings. 

“They pretty much found items in the vehicle that pretty much matched the items that had been taken from the victims of the robberies. They did find a firearm in the vehicle,” Littlejohn said.

Police are unsure how many suspects were involved in the pursuit. No arrests have been made at this time.
