FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

A police chase turned into a double shooting Thursday morning, injuring two suspects.

The shooting happened at Raspberry Lane and Greenbrook Lane in Flint about 2:30 a.m.

The incident started when Michigan State Police tried to pull over a vehicle for a traffic violation near the intersection of Atherton Road and Grand Traverse Street. The 2004 Buick Rendezvous fled from police.

During the five minute pursuit the suspects rammed the police vehicle, police said. A second MSP vehicle and a Flint police unit joined in the chase.

Police stopped the suspects near the intersection of Greenbrooke Lane and Raspberry Lane. The driver put the vehicle in reverse and tried to run a trooper down, police said. 

Police then fired into the vehicle, hitting both suspects. An 18-year-old Flint man was shot in the wrist and a 36-year-old Flint man was hit in the thigh and abdomen. They were both taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said.

There were four state troopers involved in the incident and all four have been placed on administrative leave pending investigation.
