Flint — Flint police say they shot and wounded two men involved in a shootout with officers.

The officers weren’t injured in Tuesday night’s shooting.

Police Chief James Tolbert says officers were conducting surveillance following a drive-by shooting that happened Monday night. Officers spotted a vehicle that might have been related to the shooting and the men in the vehicle opened fire on police.

Tolbert says officers returned fire, wounding two of three men. The Flint Journal reports the wounded were treated at a hospital and all three were eventually jailed.

Police are investigating both shootings. Tolbert says the initial drive-by shooting stemmed from an incident that happened at an area school.
