One passenger ran from the vehicle while three others -- 20-year old Cassius Clay, 31-year old Robert Solomon and 25-year old Jonathan Goodwin -- were detained. Officers did find weapons inside of the vehicle.

The passenger that fled on foot, 26-year old Martell Head, had gone inside of a nearby apartment trying to hide, but the resident who lived their alerted police to his presence. He was detained soon after.

Head was charged with deadly conduct, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon and evading arrest. Solomon and Goodwin were charged with deadly conduct and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon; and Clay was charged with deadly conduct and evading arrest in a vehicle.

Officers impounded the Jeep and transported the four men to the City Detention Center. Three men have been released on bond, the only one remaining in jail being Martell Head.
