A GUNMAN opened fire on a police car in Highgate late on Sunday night.
Gunshots were fired at the unmarked car on Archway Road around 10.20pm. Luckily, the officers escaped without injury.
The drama started when a sniffer dog unit was brought in and a massive search operation was launched around Highgate. While combing the area, a dog handler stopped a 26-year-old man who allegedly threatened him with a shotgun. The man was later arrested by armed officers on Gaskell Road.
Two other teenagers, aged 16 and 18, were arrested nearby in relation to the incident. A suspicious vehicle was also found by officers on Bancroft Avenue, off Aylmer Road.
