SAGINAW, Mich. (WNEM) - Two suspects are in custody following a foot chase that led to a multiple car crash on Franklin Street outside of TV5′s Saginaw Studio.

Two suspects were taken into custody following a short foot chase that happened shortly after a crash at the intersection of Franklin Street and Genesee Avenue.

Saginaw Police said officers were conducting a traffic stop on a stolen vehicle. When officers activated emergency lights, the car stopped but then fled the scene. Investigators said the two suspects inside the car were juveniles.

Police said during the pursuit, one of the suspects threw a handgun out of the window of the car.

Upon crashing their vehicle, the suspects got out of their car and ran, but they were ultimately stopped in front of the main entrance to TV5′s news studio.

One car heading westbound on Genesee Avenue was struck by the suspect vehicle and ended up hitting a lamp post. Firefighters used the jaws of life to get the driver out. The driver was taken away by paramedics.

A passenger in a second car that was hit was seen being taken away by paramedics.

Both suspects were arrested and lodged at the Juvenile Detention Center.

The Saginaw Police K9 Unit posted on Facebook that K9 Cigan was deployed to find the gun thrown out of the car during the pursuit. It was found in a thick, grassy vacant lot. Police said Cigan was instrumental in locating the gun and removing it from the neighborhood.
