Two people are on the loose after they stole a vehicle, led police on a chase and rammed a police car, prompting officers to fire their weapons on the suspects, according to officers with the Corpus Christi Police Department.

The suspects escaped on foot and are still at large, according to officers on the scene. No current threat to the public was present after the escape.

The search has been ongoing the in area since about 4:30 a.m. Areas near Richter and Milo Streets were shut down during this time.

Police and crime scene units can be seen in the neighborhood and crime scene tape has been installed.
