LAWTON_ A carjacking at gunpoint in Lawton led to a police chase on the city's west side Sunday afternoon. Police say a group of four men pulled a gun on a car owner in the 2300 block of Hoover, before they took his car and drove off.

Officers later located the car and chased it for a short time before the suspects stopped.

"They fled," said Lawton Police Lieutenant Tom Crawford. "They bailed at basically 24th and Williams, trying to make it back to where the original car was taken. We did apprehend two suspects."

The two other suspects managed to run away and police are still looking for them. You can count on us for new developments.
