OMAHA — Police say two teens accused of shooting at Omaha officers during a chase have been arrested.

Police say the incident began at about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday when officers were called to an area around Miller Park on reports of an assault. Officers spotted a suspect driving past them and began following the vehicle when they say a 17-year-old passenger fired a gun at them.

Police gave chase, eventually arresting the 17-year-old and an 18-year-old man. No one was hit by the gunfire.
