LANSING | Three potential suspects in a Lansing drive-by shooting were detained early Friday following a pursuit that traveled into Northwest Indiana, Hobart police said.

Following the shooting in Illinois, a pursuit started about 2:30 a.m. that led into the Indiana city, Hobart police Sgt. Jeremy Ogden said.

Tire-puncturing stop sticks were deployed at 37th Avenue and Louisiana Street in Hobart during the pursuit, Ogden said. The sticks successfully punctured tires on the vehicle, but it continued traveling east on 37th Avenue.

The vehicle later headed south on Montgomery Street and eventually stopped at 39th Avenue, Ogden said.

Three suspects fled the vehicle, but they were later taken into custody and transported to the Hobart Police Department, police said.

Ogden said no one was injured, and there were no crashes during the pursuit.

Names of the suspects had not been released as of Friday.

Lansing police responded to the 2500 block of Ridge Road about 2:15 a.m. Friday after reports of gunshots in the area, according to Detective Lt. Steven Roberts.

Roberts said information indicated a dark-colored SUV was involved and left the scene. Officers located the vehicle westbound on Ridge Road and attempted to stop it, according to Roberts in a statement. No one was injured in the incident, and the investigation is ongoing, Roberts said.
