According to the USCP, at approximately 12:30 p.m. two patrol officers spotted the stolen vehicle, which authorities believe was involved in an armed carjacking, near Union Station. 

Officers followed the stolen SUV a few blocks until the Ford Explorer crashed into an orange construction barrier near Second Street, SE and East Capitol Street.

That's when two teenagers – 18-year-old Lamar Fenner and 19-year-old Isjalon Armstead – jumped out of the SUV and fled the scene. 

A semi-automatic 9mm ghost gun with a loaded high capacity magazine fell from the passenger door during the pursuit, the USCP says. 

One suspect jumped into a fenced-in construction site where USCP officers arrested him. The other was caught a block away. 

The armed carjacking case is currently still under DC Metropolitan Police Department investigation.
