The air support unit followed the truck to the intersection of 22nd Street and 2nd Avenue where it crashed into a Nissan Frontier.

The GMC driver then allegedly pulled what appeared to be a firearm on the Nissan driver and took off in that truck, eventually abandoning that truck in the 1300-block of 8th Street East.

At that point police said he tried to steal another vehicle.
