INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Police say four men were arrested after a police chase that went through parts of downtown Indianapolis at speeds of up to 90 mph.

Police say the chase started on Arnolda Avenue, near Michigan and Tibbs. Officers say they tried to pull a truck over after hearing gunshots in the area but the truck took off.

Shawna Furman  told 24-Hour News 8 that those stray bullets ripped through just about every side of her home a little after midnight on Friday. During the gunfire, Furman squeezed her daughter who was laying just a few feet away from her sleeping.

After going through downtown, police say the truck stopped at 22nd and Carrollton, which is northeast of downtown.

Officers say all four men in the truck were arrested. Those men have been identified as Leroy Ruffin, Tommy Rice, Ramone Cork and Curtis Mayfield.

It’s unclear who the gunmen may have been targeting. Officers later found guns in the middle of the street that maybe tied to the suspects.

According to investigators, four other homes were also hit by bullets.

No injuries were reported.
