Syracuse Police say several people are facing charges after a pursuit in Syracuse early Wednesday morning.

Police say they responded to the 1400 block of South McBride Street just after midnight when they were told a group of males with handguns had gotten into a Chrysler Sebring and left the area.

Officers spotted the vehicle on East Taylor Street, but it fled when they tried to conduct a traffic stop, police said. The vehicle pursuit came to an end when the car hit a tree on the 800 block of North Geddes Street, according to police.

The occupants of the vehicle then tried to flee on foot; four were caught and taken into custody and a Wesson .38 revolver was also found in the road, according to police.

The driver was identified as Stefan Ragland, 23, of Syracuse. He faces several charges, including Criminal Possession of a Weapon and Unlawful Fleeing of a Police Officer. The three other suspects, identified by police as 39-year-old Quincy Durham, 19-year-old Simeon Marshall and a 16-year-old, all from Syracuse, also face weapons charges.

All four suspects were taken to the Onondaga County Justice Center to await arraignment, according to police.
