GLENDALE, AZ — The Arizona Department of Public Safety says it was involved in an "active law enforcement situation" in Glendale Thursday night.

At around 5:30 p.m., DPS was tipped off about a suspected gang weapons transaction. When troopers tried to pull over the suspected vehicle, the suspect rammed their vehicle into the patrol car.

Troopers were searching for two additional suspects who were last seen in the area on 91st and Maryland avenues.
