Three people were arrested on Sunday after two handguns were recovered by police.

Police say they were responding to a report of shots fired on Augustine Street, near Dewey Avenue on Sunday afternoon. They say the caller described the suspect’s vehicle, and state troopers later spotted a vehicle matching that description on Lake Avenue and State Street.

Troopers say the car was listed as stolen, and when they tried to pull it over, the suspects drove off.

Police were able to capture the three suspects. The investigation is still ongoing.
