EAST CHICAGO | Three men were arrested after a shootout in the Marktown area Monday night, police said.
No injuries or damages to property were reported, police said, despite an exchange of at least 23 shots from at least two weapons across the street from Marktown Park.
Witnesses said a white Ford Explorer with tinted windows slowly had circled the 400 block of Broad Street several times about 11 p.m. when someone inside began shooting at a group of residents in front of a house.
Responding officers reported seeing a white Explorer traveling south on Indianapolis Boulevard at a high rate of speed and curbed the vehicle in the 4100 block of Magoun Avenue.
A passenger in the Explorer jumped out and ran, police said, but was taken into custody near Central High School after a brief foot chase.
Jose Figueroa-Rodriguez, 30, of East Chicago, remained jailed Tuesday on resisting law enforcement and criminal recklessness charges.
Arnaldo Madera, 26, and Juan Carlos Cordero-Madera, 19, both of Hammond, also were held on pending charges of criminal recklessness.
Detectives reported finding 10 spent 9 mm casings on Broad Street and 13 spent .40-caliber casings near the adjacent Sanitary District pumping station.
