GARDEN GROVE, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities say two armed robbery suspects are in custody and a third is being sought following a lengthy high-speed vehicle chase that ended with a crash and gunfire in Orange County.

Police Corporal Anthony Bertagna says the three male suspects held up an individual outside a Santa Ana taco stand early Thursday morning.

They then led police on a pursuit through Fountain Valley and Huntington Beach until the driver lost control and crashed in Garden Grove around 2:30 a.m.

Bertagna says that's when an officer-involved shooting occurred. He says it's unclear whether there was an exchange of gunfire.

Bertagna says the two men in custody were not struck and police do not believe the third man was either.

Three weapons were recovered at the scene.

No officers were hurt.
