Wichita police say three people are in custody after officers fired shots while pursuing a stolen car.

Police spokesman Paul Cruz says when officers tried to arrest people in a stolen Jeep at a McDonald's drive-thru on Tuesday morning, the driver drove toward officers, who fired several rounds. The Jeep crashed into another vehicle. The driver of that car suffered minor injuries.

Cruz says a woman inside the vehicle was arrested but two men carjacked another vehicle. Sedgwick County deputies pursued the vehicle and one suspect was eventually arrested in a field. Cruz says that driver was hurt but it was unclear what caused the injuries.

The second man was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon.

No names have been released.
