ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- A 13-year-old and 19-year-old were arrested and charged after a pursuit involving a vehicle that was stolen from St. Louis’ Shaw neighborhood Monday morning.

Trevon Fisher, 19, is charged with second-degree tampering with a motor vehicle and resisting arrest. The 13-year-old is facing juvenile charges of first-degree tampering with a motor vehicle and resisting arrest.

Police said the carjacking happened around 1 a.m. in the 4100 block of Flad. Officers later saw the car, a gray 2018 Honda Civic, driving in the area of Michigan and Schirmer in the Patch neighborhood.

Police later began a pursuit of the vehicle after it fled westbound on I-70 into north St. Louis. The vehicle became disabled at Market and 14th Street. Both suspects fled on foot, police said.

Fisher and the 13-year-old were arrested after police tased them. Police said the 13-year-old was the one driving the car.

Police found a semi-automatic gun on the passenger seat of the stolen car. Another gun was recovered in the 3900 block of West Florissant that police said was thrown from the vehicle during the pursuit.

The driver of the stolen car hit two vehicles near Arsenal and I-55. At the end of the pursuit, a tire flew off the car, bounced across the street, and hit the front fender of a marked police vehicle causing minor damage.

Fisher is being held without bond.
