Posted: Updated:
ST PETERSBURG -

St. Petersburg Police Officers shot 19-year-old Danadrick Chance in the leg Friday night as he rode in a car that accelerated towards police on a sidewalk.  While serving a search warrant for illegal narcotics at 3810 18th Ave. S. in St. Petersburg, police say a white Toyota Camry parked near the home drove directly toward a group of uniformed and undercover officers in department issued jackets. 

Sgt. Shannon Halstead and two undercover detectives fired at the car, hitting Chance in the leg, police said. Chance was taken to Bayfront Medical Center with non life-threatening injuries.  None of the officers or detectives were injured, police said.

The white Toyota Camry fled the scene to an alley near the intersection of 13th Avenue South and 37th Street South.  The vehicle stopped and several people got out and ran, according to police. 

Police are still searching for two other people who may have been in the car, including the driver.  Charges are pending against 19 year old Chance.

Reginald Thompson, 23, and Ernest Jenkins, 21, were arrested as a result of the search warrant at the home, where police say they recovered a handgun, marijuana and crack cocaine.  Police said Thompson and Jenkins were charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell.

A K-9 officer tracked another passenger of the vehicle and arrested him at a nearby location.  He is identified as Marcus Rowe, 25. He was not injured. 

It appears there were possibly two other people in the white Toyota Camry, including the driver.  Police are still working to identify those people. 

Sgt. Halstead and the two undercover detectives have been placed on administrative leave while the case is investigated. Police said the leave is standard procedure in cases when officers fire their weapons.
