Two police officers received minor injuries following a vehicle pursuit in which a firearm was displayed.

The incident began around 4:48 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 10, when Bridgeport Police were alerted to an attempted robbery on North Washington Avenue where a firearm was displayed, said Scott Appleby, director of Emergency Management.
