NORTH HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Four people were taken into custody Thursday in North Hollywood following a pursuit sparked by a possible robbery attempt.

According to Los Angeles police, the suspects possibly tried to rob a gas station early Thursday morning. When officers arrived on scene, the suspects fled and a chase ensued around 3:30 a.m. just off Laurel Canyon Boulevard south of Burbank Boulevard.

The pursuit ended seconds later near Rhodes Avenue north of Chandler Boulevard when the suspects crashed their car into a curb.

Two of the suspects were taken into custody following the crash, but two fled on foot. Police said one was armed with a handgun.

Officers used K-9 support to track down the suspects. The armed suspect came out from an unlocked carport or detached garage and pretended to be a resident, but officers took him into custody.

The second and last suspect was also tracked down and taken into custody shortly before 7 a.m. The last suspect was injured after suffering a bite wound from a K-9.
