Police officers searching for a robbery suspect at an apartment complex in the 500 block of Ashlawn Drive were fired upon after spotting the man they were looking for, said a police spokeswoman.
At 7:39 p.m., police were searching the complex when they saw the suspect and he reportedly fired a gun at officers, said Karen Parker-Chesson, police spokeswoman. She did not know whether officers returned fire.
The man then fled on foot to East Little Creek Road and headed west but was apprehended by police a few minutes later in the 500 block of East Little Creek, she said.
His identity was being withheld because he is a person of interest in several other incidents, including the robbery that police were initially investigating.
