The two women weren’t happy with the guys who allegedly got marijuana but didn’t pay for it Monday night, police say.

They first tried to block their exit from a parking lot in the 3000 block of South Seneca, then called an accomplice when the two men, ages 20 and 21, managed to escape, Lt. Doug Nolte said. The male accomplice blocked the buyers’ car with his Honda in the 2900 block of West Harry, then got out and began firing shots at them.

The two men then called 911 and drove to the Patrol South substation at Pawnee and Broadway, chased by the two women who had confronted them on Seneca.

The men told police they had purchased marijuana but not paid for it, Nolte said. When officers checked the women’s car, they found marijuana — and the 4-year-old daughter of one of the women.

The two women, ages 23 and 22, were arrested. The girl was placed into protective custody.

“We still have not identified the suspect who fired shots at the two victims,” Nolte said.
