Hours later, authorities say the other two suspects surrendered right in the parking lot of one of their substations after a police pursuit.

The chase started on the South Side of the city and ended at the SAPD Central Patrol Station near the magistrate’s office.

Both of the suspects inside the car surrendered, officials say.

Police say all three are now in custody. One suspect is facing an aggravated assault charge and the other two suspects are expected to be charged with theft of a vehicle and evading arrest.

The officer that shot the minor has been placed on administrative duty, pending the outcome of the investigation, according to SAPD Chief McManus.

Additionally, police are also investigating a separate robbery at a CVS Pharmacy on Culebra Road, which happened moments before the officer-involved shooting.

All of the suspects involved in the CVS Pharmacy robbery are still at large.
