ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say gunshots were fired by suspects who were fleeing a hold-up at a scrap metal business near Newark Liberty International Airport.

Elizabeth Police Director James Cosgrove tells WNBC-TV (https://bit.ly/PdrDnr) in New York that four suspects are in custody. He says a fifth suspect who fled the scene, allegedly in a stolen vehicle, remained at large Friday night.

The robbery reportedly occurred around 3 p.m. Friday at Bayway Scrap Metals in Elizabeth.

Cosgrove says patrol officers soon spotted a suspicious truck about two miles from the scene. The suspects were then captured following a confrontation.

Police say two suspects fired gunshots as they fled in the stolen vehicle. No officers were injured.
