When the suspects escaped, they threw a 9mm polymer pistol P80, a ghost pistol Smith & Wesson M&P .40 Shield, a Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm Shield and a Glock .40 pistol, all of which were found.

The chase continued through Salinas and into Watsonville, culminating near Watsonville High School, where the driver crashed into a wooden fence in the front yard of a house on Blackburn Street.

Residents said they saw police helicopters assisting in the incident.

The passengers jumped out of the moving car and fled the car. Officers chased on foot, and the car stopped after hitting a fence. Four suspects were detained, no one was injured during the harassment.

The chase was assisted by the Watsonville, Salinas, Saledad, and Gonzalez police departments, as well as ground and air support by the California Patrol, and the Santa Cruz and Monterey County Sheriff’s Offices.
