New surveillance video just obtained by ABC7 shows an early morning shootout unfold between Chicago police and unknown suspects on the city's Northwest Side.

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Surveillance video captured from Jay's Food and Liquors shows a dark sedan making a fast turn onto the 6300-hundred block of Nagle Avenue.

The car fishtailed before crashing into a light pole as a nearby police cruiser quickly pulled up next to the car with its lights flashing.

Police said that is when an unknown male suspect fired at officers from inside the car. Officers returned fire, but police said no one was hit.

Anthony Cable lives right by where the shooting unfolded and said he was woken up by his brother Friday morning.

"He came into my room, knocked on the door and said, 'hey, you got to see this,'" Cable said.

Police said that two suspects were later arrested after running away down an alley in a neighborhood Cable says is occupied by first responders.

"It has a lot of police officers living here and fire department officials, as well as state troopers," Cable said. "There are so many people who are part of law enforcement who are right down the block."

An individual could also be seen being moved from the roof of a nearby business onto a stretcher down to the ground below. Chicago police have not clarified how this individual is connected to the shooting.

Frank Maldonado lives right by where police say the incident occurred.

"Something woke me up," resident Frank Maldonado said. "I did get up, looked out the window and saw the police here. Didn't hear if there were shots fired or something, I don't know, but when I came here, it looked like they were looking for something. I noticed they were up on the roof behind me. There was some commotion. They were telling people to get on the ground."

Fortunately, police say no officers were injured in the incident, but it's not known if any of the suspects were hurt.

Area Five detectives are investigating.
