Two people are in custody and police are searching for a third suspect after shots were fired at an off-duty officer's car in Phoenix.

According to Phoenix police, the incident started around midnight in the area of 7th Avenue and the Salt River Bridge. At that location, a vehicle was driving aggressively around an off-duty officer's vehicle and another car. Police say someone inside the aggressive vehicle fired shots that struck the off-duty officer's car.

Police have identified the two suspects arrested as 30-year-old Coltin Friedenstab and 18-year-old Angel Leon. 

The suspects continued on to a home near 32nd Avenue and Polk Street where the occupants exited the car. Two of three suspects forced entry where as many as seven people were inside. The third suspect fled the area. 

Police say after negotiation, two suspects exited the home and were taken into custody without incident. The third suspect has not been located. 

Fortunately, no injuries were reported. 

The investigation is ongoing.
