Shortly before 8 p.m., an officer working undercover witnessed an armed carjacking on 28th just south of Glenwood Drive. The officer attempted to intervene, and the suspect rammed his vehicle with the stolen car. Officers pursed the suspect to 28th near Valmont Road where he crashed and then carjacked another person in the area. The suspect then drove the 2500 block of Bluff Street, where he ditched the vehicle and took off on foot.

The suspect is described as a dark skinned male with a medium build, approximately 5’7” – 5’8” tall, wearing atan puffy jacket and is armed with a handgun.

Residents within a three-block radius of 2500 Bluff St. received a reverse 9-1-1 to shelter in place. Police are currently searching the area on foot and are utilizing a K-9 and drone. Anyone in the area that sees or hears anything suspicious is asked to call 9-1-1 immediately.
