At about 7:30 p.m. in the area of 25th and Connecticut streets, officers attempted to stop a car that matched the description of a vehicle involved in an armed robbery, Officer Gordon Shyy said.

During the pursuit, a firearm was thrown from the car. Police later discovered it, Shyy said. One suspect was taken into custody. Another fled on foot and remained at large as of about 8:30 p.m., according to Shyy. The suspect in custody was taken to a hospital to be treated for minor injuries.
