A teen faces attempted murder charges after police say he shot at three people.

Officers say the incident started on the 1100 block of Berkley in Pueblo when the teenage boy got into a confrontation with three males and the mother of one of the males.

The boy, who was on a bike, fired one shot and rode away. The males got into their Jeep and chased the boy. Their pursuit ended when they crashed the Jeep into a fence of a corner house at Carteret and Arroyo. Police responded and took the three males into custody. The teen was found a short time later hiding in a nearby house.

The boy on the bike faces four counts of attempted first-degree murder and a charge of juvenile in possession of a handgun. He also had four warrants for truancy. He was taken to Pueblo Youth Corrections.

Police have not released the names of any of the people involved in this case.
