The Officers conducted their investigation and learned that male and female victims were eating on the patio of a local restaurant when the suspect took the female victim’s purse from the table and fled on foot.  The male victim chased and caught the suspect, at which time a fight ensued.  The getaway vehicle was parked nearby (occupied by two additional suspects) and upon seeing the male victim and suspect fighting, the front passenger produced a handgun and fired one round.   The suspect then entered the vehicle and the driver fled the area without the purse.
