CLEVELAND- Two people were arrested and another is wanted by police after shots were fired at Cleveland officers Tuesday.

It happened Tuesday night near East 132nd Street and Kinsman Road. The FOX 8 I-Team first told you about the story Wednesday morning.

Cleveland police said one man fired several shots into a marked police car as the officer drove backwards to avoid being hit. Cleveland police said the officers accelerated and drove forward. The man then fired seven to nine shots in rapid succession, police said.

The shooter jumped into an Infinity G35, which pulled out in front of another car. The two vehicles tried to get away from police, but the drivers were arrested. The shooter remains on the loose.

No officers were hurt. But this comes in the wake of a series of murders of law enforcement officers around the country.
