ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Two suspects are facing charges after an attempted traffic stop led to a pursuit in the City of Rochester.

New York State Police didn’t specify where the chase started or ended, but say that a trooper tried to pull a vehicle over for a traffic violation at around 3 p.m. on Friday.

Troopers say the driver did not stop, and at one point in the chase, a 16-year-old got out of the car and ran, but ended up being taken into custody by a state trooper, who found a loaded 9mm handgun on the teenager.

The chase ended when the driver turned down a dead-end road in the Town of Irondequoit.
