BRATENAHL -- Bullets flew past police officers as they conducted a routine traffic stop early Monday morning. Two departments were working together to search for suspects.

Around 1:20 a.m. Monday, Cleveland police were called to help two Bratenahl police officers. They were conducting a traffic stop on Interstate 90 westbound on the exit ramp to Martin Luther King Boulevard, when someone in a truck fired about 10 shots at them.

"I consider it to be a safe place.  Like, we're here out and about ourselves, if gunshots went off here, I'd be surprised and really worried," said Jenny Kraninger.

People who live in and visit Bratenahl say they are concerned that something like this would happen here.

"We work at the hospital and we do see gunshot victims coming in through the hospital pretty often, so it's not, I don't think it's good that that's going on," said Andy Stein.

Cleveland police say officers saw the bullets fly from a dark-colored Honda Ridgeline truck with tinted windows traveling westbound.

No officers were injured.

"I think that there is some, I guess, thought or mentality that police are looked down upon right now from, by people around here, but I do think it's scary for everyone involved," Kraninger said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Cleveland or Bratenahl police.
