Patrol officers said while they were searching for the vehicle, they heard shots being fired in another part of the city.

The stolen vehicle was located but the driver refused to stop for police.

Officers started chasing the vehicle but called it off due to unsafe road conditions and the way the stolen vehicle was being driven.
