GRANDVIEW, Mo. -- Police responding to a burglary call at an apartment complex late Monday morning encountered two suspects who officers say tried to run them over with their car, prompting one officer to shoot at the approaching car.

Grandview Police were sent to investigate two suspicious men at the Arbors Apartments southeast of Blue Ridge Blvd. and Longview Road. They saw two men running to their vehicle, a dark blue 2003 Monte Carlo.

The men hopped in the car as officers pursued them. Then officers say the driver of the Monte Carlo started accelerating toward them. One officer shot at the vehicle to stop it, breaking its windshield with the blast. The suspects sped off in the Monte Carlo.

Anyone with information to the whereabouts of the vehicle or the identity of the suspects are asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816- 474-TIPS.
