Solon, Ohio — On April 6, 2023, Solon Police Officers were alerted to the presence of a stolen vehicle on Aurora Road via an automated license plate reader system around 10:31 a.m.. Officer Butto located the vehicle on Aurora Road and learned that it was taken in an Aggravated Robbery reported to the Cleveland Police Department on April 4. The officer attempted to stop the vehicle on SOM Center Road south of Aurora Road with lights and siren in a marked police vehicle. The suspect vehicle, a blue Honda Odyssey minivan, did not stop. A chase ensued, traveling south on SOM Center Rd, west on Arthur Rd, and northbound on Solon Blvd. It lasted approx. one minute and forty-five seconds. The stolen car crashed into the rear of another vehicle on Solon Blvd near Roxbury Elementary School. A suspect (driver) exited the stolen Honda with a gun in his hand. Shots were fired by the officer as the suspect fled from the vehicle.
The suspect traveled southeast through some backyards, dropping the gun in the grass. After a short foot chase, the suspect surrendered. The foot chase lasted about 45 seconds. There were no injuries to the officer or suspect. The suspect’s firearm, a loaded semi-automatic .40 caliber Glock model 23, was recovered by police immediately after the safe capture of the suspect. The weapon was loaded with 22 bullets. It had an extended magazine. One of those bullets was in the chamber. It is not clear if the suspect had fired a weapon or not. A neighborhood canvass did not turn up any damage to property or injuries to citizens immediately afterwards. The 16-year-old boy was the only suspect involved in the stolen vehicle chase, he is currently being held at the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Detention Center on the following charges: suspicion of receiving stolen property, improper handling of a firearm, fleeing and eluding, aggravated menacing and carrying concealed weapons.

Ofc he' s black😂😂😂
One lucky kid. Hope he gets his s$it together
Way to miss the shot officer, hope it didn't hit anyone or properties…
But he was only sixteen, he could have grown up to cure cancer. No, he wouldn't have. Where do you think shitbag adults come from? They started off as shitbag kids
I’m glad the suspect wasn’t shot but… that was a lot of shooting for not hitting him.
Obviously the officer should be fired and brought up on charges of endangerment. Very disgusting blindly shooting in a neighborhood.
16 years old and already such shit
Gee, I knew the description somehow before they ran.
Officer got the Golden Handcuffs DLC, lmao
16 years old, running from cops with guns, his life is already over.
He's in for a rude awakening after he gets out as a felon.
Not how old you are, rather how stupid your actions.
Ofcourse skin colour is random
Send this kid to prison for life. Send the parent or guardian to prison for 10 years.
Enough of this shit. There is a culture problem in the black community. Call it out
Officer realized he has terrible aim.
This is why they say when it's time to shoot, shoot, and when it's time to move, move. Don't do both at the same time.
He should not be blurred…running with a gun and auto theft and reckless endangerment gets you adult charges then you wear the shame as an adult.
Lucky guy. He is still alive.
He doesn't have VTEC experience yo
2:05 what a nice car ya got there! It even closes its own door.
The officers professionalism is outstanding, did what he had to do, and made verbal contact with him for medical reason.. outstanding. God bless him. Thank you for this.
Scumbag lucky to be alive. He won't last.
Anytime these type of people are not neutralized on the spot , we are still in trouble
sorry folks, no holes to plug.
And at the age of going to prom, having the time of your youth life, focusing on a career, instead you graduate with a criminal record. Congrats. 👏
As an EMT I applaud their efforts to ensure the suspect wasn’t shot.
God was with this young kids “mans” life. I pray he turns his life around.
No reckless driving charge? Wow.. surprised they didn't throw the book at him since he endangered so many people. Guess it's because he's a juvenile.
this kid is lucky, he didn’t die.
I wonder if anyone cleaned up the mess in those people’s yard?
That pig needs charged for firing his gun and missing which is a danger to the public
So in California if this kid did this Newsom would name a street after him and he would be out within half a dozen hours of his illegal arrest.
You know he was a good kid just testing out his future newspaper route.
So which brand of scissors? ✂️ 5:32
Bro got plucked
Time to change your life around kid.
Knows that training… “drop the gun” so I can shoot…
Glad he didn't get hit, but what's up with the cop ripping his clothes apart? I get it but I could tell he went over board by the look on the other cops face
