PHOENIX - Two Phoenix police officers escaped injury after someone in a passing vehicle shot at them while they were inside their patrol car.

Detective Stacy Derge says two shots were fired, with one bullet striking the hood and the other the roof of the patrol car.

The officers weren't injured and pursued the Chevrolet Tahoe for several blocks before the vehicle pulled into the parking lot of an apartment complex near the area of the 4300 block of North 53rd Avenue and the occupants bailed out.

Derge says 19-year-old Juan Beltran Nunez and 24-year-old Richard Hurtado, both suspected illegal immigrants, were arrested after police sealed off the area and conducted a search late Tuesday night.
