BRATENAHL, Ohio (WOIO) - A Bratenahl K-9 officer helped apprehend two suspects hiding in the woods Friday evening after a police chase that started in Parma.

The Parma police were pursued a vehicle occupied by people who had shot at Parma officers from Parma to Bratenahl, according to a Bratenahl police Facebook post.

That’s when they called the Bratenahl police for help. Officers deployed spike strips and the vehicle was disabled.

K-9 officer Cash was deployed to track the suspects who fled the vehicle and ran into a heavily wood area, according to the post. Cash found their hiding spot and they were taken into custody without further incident.

“Good boy Bubba,” said one police officer.
