It ended in the 5900 block of Morris Avenue with the driver and passengers of the carjacked vehicle getting out and trying to make a run for it.

Everyone in the car was taken into custody. Police say all four are juveniles, three males and one female. At least one weapon was recovered from the scene, and investigators say it was displayed during the carjacking.
