Two officers shot at while on patrol

        Two Cincinnati police officers were fired upon early Monday as they drove through Fay Apartments, the public housing complex in North Fairmount, and police subsequently picked up four men after a chase.

        Officers Spencer Henderson and Christopher Pohlman were patrolling the complex about 1 a.m. when one of four people in a stolen Dodge Shadow fired several shots at them, authorities said. The officers ducked and were uninjured.

        The officers pursued the car until the occupants bailed out on President Drive and ran. SWAT officers were called after a police dog tracked some of the men to a nearby apartment, where the occupants refused to come out.

        William Barnes, 19, and Anthony Roseman, 18, who had seven outstanding juvenile warrants, were arrested after being talked out of the apartment. Two others were picked up after coming out of nearby woods. At least one of them was held on unrelated warrants.

        Police found two 9 mm pistols in the Nottingham Drive apartment. They did not say whether either of the guns was used to fire on the officers or if any of the four arrested was involved in the shooting.

        It was the second time in four days that Cincinnati police officers were fired upon. Early Friday in Avondale, two undercover drug officers reported shots fired at them.
