A stolen vehicle riddled with bullets crashed on a busy street in Midtown Atlanta on Wednesday, police said.

Officers were called to the 1000 block of Spring Street about shots being fired shortly before 1 p.m. and found the vehicle crashed into a barrier. The SUV was unoccupied at that point and was damaged from possible gunfire, police said.

Witnesses told officers that a group of men was attempting to break into the vehicle. Once they were spotted, they fled in the vehicle and eventually crashed it, police said.

The suspects then got out of the SUV and left on foot. A description of the suspects was not provided.

Police did not say who shot at the vehicle. Officers confirmed they recovered two guns while canvassing the area where the suspects were last seen.
