BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Four people have been arrested in connection with a barrage of gunfire in Alabama.

Sgt. Bryan Ensley with Birmingham police tells AL.com that officers in Ensley heard four men shooting into a home and some vehicles on Sunday afternoon, which led to a police chase.

The chase ended when the suspect’s car stopped by Jackson-Olin High School. One of the suspects resisted the arrest and was shocked with a stun gun.

Shelton says no one was injured during the initial shooting. Police recovered five guns, including one that had been reported stolen.

The men’s names are being withheld pending formal charges.
