TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

One man was taken to a hospital and police detained two people after a shooting on Tucson's east side in the early morning hours of Wednesday, Nov. 1.

Police said the man's injuries are not life-threatening.

Two people were detained at an apartment complex at 5353 E. 22nd Street after bailing out of a car, which was occupied by four or five people. Police are still looking for the other suspects.

Police said no arrests have been made.

The original call to police came at about 1 a.m. from the 5800 block of East 28th Street, according to Sgt. Pete Dugan of the Tucson Police Department.

Police said a man reported a break-in at his home and that a robbery was in progress.

After making the call, the man got in his car to pursue the suspects, who had fled in a car.

Police in a helicopter observed the chase and saw one of the suspects shoot at the man with an AK-47. The man was struck at least once in his arm and his face was injured by shattered glass.

The man stopped his car, and police stopped his bleeding by applying a tourniquet before medical personnel arrived and took him to the hospital.

Police recovered the rifle after the suspects abandoned their car at the apartment complex.

Police believe this was a targeted attack and not a random home invasion. Dugan said "dangerous drugs and drug paraphernalia" were found in the home during a search.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME. You can remain anonymous.
