Independence Police took six suspects into custody Tuesday after officers responded to a call that someone at Bass Pro Shops said a gun with a laser pointer had been pointed at them.
The call came about 1:42 p.m., police said, and when officers arrived a brief chase ensued involving a car. That vehicle crossed U.S. 40 into the Cliffs subdivision before quickly finding a dead end, and all the suspects fled from the car, which was determined to be stolen. After a brief search, police found all six suspects, four of whom are juveniles.
The case remains under investigation.
