Police have released video showing officers chasing and arresting suspects wanted in a northwest Atlanta shooting last week.

Atlanta police said four suspects in a blue Tesla were involved in the shooting of a 29-year-old man at 142 Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard NW around 5 p.m. on June 12.

Police said the man was shot in his abdomen and one of his hands. The victim was alert, conscious and breathing, and was taken to the hospital.

An hour and a half after the shooting, officers said they spotted the Tesla about five miles away, in the area of 10th Street and Techwood Drive.

Police said they tried to stop the car, but the driver sped off, leading officers on a chase along Lee Street SW before losing control and coming to a stop.

Police said two suspects riding in the car were arrested immediately. The driver got away, but he was arrested after a brief foot chase. Police said they found a gun on him.

A fourth suspect, “who fled from units the day of the shooting, was later identified and apprehended out of jurisdiction,” police said.

Below are the suspects and the charges against them, according to police:

* Kentavious Campbell, 18 – charged with aggravated assault, aggravated battery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, eluding police, obstruction and reckless driving

* Elijah Griffin, 17 – charged with aggravated assault, aggravated battery and carrying a pistol under the age of 18

* Isaiah Grimes, 22 – charged with aggravated assault, aggravated battery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon

* Jaiden Chatman, 23 – charged with aggravated assault, aggravated battery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, use of firearm by a felon during the commission of a crime
