HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) – Police said a group of juveniles led them on a chase after they tried to pull a vehicle over.

Police said they responded to a report of a group of people pulling a gun on someone in the 1200 block of Cumnock St. in Henderson.

The caller told authorities the suspects fled in a gray/blue Hyundai.

When officers tried to pull over a vehicle matching that description near the 900 block of First St., police said the vehicle fled through the east end of Henderson until it struck a building on the corner of Mill St.

At this point, police said multiple suspects fled on foot from the vehicle and the driver was caught.

According to police, one passenger, who was riding in the rear of the vehicle during the pursuit, contacted dispatch wanting to turn himself in because he was not from the area and had lost his shoes fleeing the scene.

Police said everyone involved was a juvenile.

The two apprehended juveniles were sent to the McCracken County Juvenile Detention Center.

The incident is still under investigation.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call police at 270-831-1295 or Henderson Crime Stoppers at 270-831-1111.
