Multiple teens were arrested and two were still wanted after police recovered a stolen vehicle and guns.

The incident began Tuesday night when task force officers got behind a Toyota Corolla that had been stolen during a robbery on Morton Avenue on April 11.

Reports stated officers attempted to stop the car on Kipling Drive, but the driver kept going for a short distance before five people inside got out and ran.

Police confirmed a 16-year-old passenger was quickly captured without incident, and a police dog tracked another passenger, identified as 19-year-old Amier Neguse, behind a home on Kipling Drive.

A third person, identified as 18-year-old Felix Reyes-Santos, was caught between Kipling Drive and Aladdin Drive.

Officers said the driver got away, but they recognized him as a 16-year-old with prior arrests. He was being sought, as well as another passenger.

A .380 caliber pistol was recovered from behind a home, and a .25 caliber pistol was found in the stolen vehicle, along with more than 100 rounds of AR-15 ammunition, more than 100 rounds of nine millimeter ammunition, keys to three other vehicles, a small amount of marijuana, and digital scales.

Reyes-Santos and Neguse were both booked into Metro Jail on charges of vehicle theft, evading arrest, unlawful gun possession, resisting arrest, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, marijuana possession, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Reyes-Santos was also booked on outstanding warrants, which charged him with three South Nashville robberies. Reports stated he allegedly shot one of the victims.

The 16-year-old was taken to Juvenile Detention on charges of vehicle theft, unlawful gun possession, evading arrest, marijuana possession, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
