A man trying to escape police ran into a Catholic school in Opa-locka, forcing police to evacuate about 140 children. No one was hurt and the suspect was arrested, police spokesman Frank Gonzalez said.

Police said they were chasing two men in a rental truck for blocks before it crashed into a house. One man was arrested on the spot and the other ran, shooting at officers before ducking into the school.
