Posted: Updated:

Gunfire sparked a wild police chase in Yonkers that ended with a crash and a man in custody.

Police say Tony Orlando Saez, 22, was involved in some sort of dispute outside the Eclipse Bar on Riverdale Avenue around 4 a.m. on Monday.

As an officer approached Saez, police say he fired two shots, hitting the front door area.

Saez then hopped into the passenger seat of a pickup truck and took off, leading officers on a chase through the city until he crashed on South Broadway.

The driver of the truck ran off but Saez was arrested. Investigators are still trying to identify and arrest the driver of the vehicle.

Saez’s handgun, allegedly used in the shooting, was stolen from South Carolina. He has been charged with attempted assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
