MILWAUKEE -- Four teenagers were arrested after fleeing from police in a stolen car and striking two other vehicles Tuesday evening.

An officer recognized the stolen car at 6:47 p.m. and attempted a traffic stop. However, the driver fled, leading officers on a pursuit for six minutes. 

The pursuit ended when the fleeing driver collided with two vehicles at 29th Street and Hampton Avenue.

All four boys in the car -- ages 15, 16, 17 and 17 -- received non-life threatening injuries and were arrested at the scene. Police also said they recovered a loaded semi-auto pistol from inside the vehicle. 

Officials said three people in one of the struck cars suffered non-life threatening injuries, and the one person in the other struck car was not injured.
