MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) -- A couple of teenagers escaped Mobile Police tonight after shots were fired around the Lansdowne neighborhood.
They say the two ran into the nearby woods.
Justin Maxie was doing a little yard work when he caught the beginning of the manhunt.
"It was about 3:30, 4 o'clock. Two guys came walking down the street and went in the woods and started shooting. They shot about six times, five or six times, and then I saw the police officer. He went in and started chasing them and ever since then it's just been crazy."
MPD set up a a perimeter from Government to the Lansdowne and Medford Drive intersection looking for suspects in the woods.
The Mobile County Sheriff’s Office with a k-9 unit was also on scene.
Maxie said, "There's a creek and then there's a big opening. People go back there and ride four-wheelers and do all kinds of stuff like that but nobody ever shoots."
After about two hours, Mobile Police suspended the search, turning up empty handed.
Maxie said he'll be a little more alert.
"Don't mess with me, I won't mess with you," he said.
The suspects got away but FOX10 News was told Mobile Police may have found the gun they were shooting. That was not been confirmed.
