2 Arrested After Pursuit Ends in Carrollton

Police took two people into custody after a vehicle pursuit ended in Carrollton Friday afternoon.

Carrollton police told NBC 5 that an officer spotted a blue Honda sedan that was believed to have been used in a recent drive-by shooting at a residence where no one was injured.

The officer attempted to pull over the driver near Interstate 35E and Crosby Road but the driver initially refused to stop. From there the chase went into North Dallas and Addison before it wound up back in Carrollton.

The driver got boxed in at the intersection of Crosby and Josey Lane -- not far from R.L. Turner High School -- and surrendered.

Police said a stolen gun was recovered from the car and that two people, 17-year-old Giovanni Hernandez, of Carrollton, and a 16-year-old female passenger, were arrested.
