TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Police say two people are in custody after firing a gun at several officers in Tampa.

The shooting happened late Tuesday after reports of a car break-in outside a home.

Police tell local news outlets that officers confronted three suspects about a block away. That's when one of the suspects began shooting at the officers. The suspects fled on foot and the officers didn't return fire.

A helicopter and K9 unit helped track down two of the suspects. A search continues for the third and an investigation is ongoing.

The names of the suspects in custody haven't been released.
