JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Witnesses say that some shooting suspects were running from police and trying to jump a fence when police ran one of them over with the police cruiser in an effort to stop them.

Our crew saw the suspects in handcuffs being taken away by ambulance.

JPD says it all started when they got a call about a maroon Jeep Cherokee firing shots in the area.

As the officer drove down Cedars of Lebanon Road, four suspects ran away from the scene. One of the suspects ran in front of an officer's car, causing him to get hit. 

JPD says the officer did not run over the suspect intentionally, but the suspect was taken to the hospital to get checked out. 

Police say that three out of the four juveniles were taken into custody.

The shell casings have been recovered.
