Peter Ross on chase: 'You could smell the gunpowder'

COOPERSVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- WZZM 13 reporter Peter Ross and photojournalist Tony Love went out to find the police chase of two bank robbery suspects, which ended with the deaths of the suspects and Walker Police Officer Trevor Slot.

Here is Peter's account:

Photojournalist Tony Love and I were headed west on I-96 when we saw a single police car go by very fast in the eastbound lane. We figured that might be the chase we were looking for, so we got off on the 8th Avenue exit, turned around and tried to follow that police car.

In my rear-view mirror I saw dozens of police cars racing at us.  We pulled over and stopped to try to get some video.  In the process, we saw a whole caravan of cars and the blue vehicle they were chasing zoom by.

Witnesses see police chase suspects through Coopersville

COOPERSVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- The police chase of two Ravenna bank robbery suspects went through Coopersville, surprising people who saw the speeding vehicles pass through their community.

Two women inside the Shell station at Randall and East Street in Coopersville saw the caravan of police cars coming fast down the road, and went outside to see what was happening.

They say, first, the SUV carrying the bank robbery suspects came speeding past -- almost hitting a customer pulling into the gas station.

The suspects' vehicle then made a 90 degree turn on right turn on Randall with a line of police cars following close behind.
