Armed suspect leads police on chase; 2 officers hurt

York police arrested a man Monday after several residents called and reported hearing shots fired on California Street.

Someone in a burgundy truck fired shots into a blue truck on California Street, according to a release from Police Chief Andy Robinson. A school resource officer who responded saw a vehicle matching the description of the burgundy truck and followed it until the driver jumped out and ran into a wooded area off Travora Ciccle, Robinson said.

Other officers responded to the 400 block of California Street, where the blue truck was parked and the victim was standing by.

The York County Sheriff's K-9 unit was called to track the suspect, who was later seen on Church Street.

Robinson and York police Lt. Gary Messer, who were nearby, stopped the suspect, identified as Deelgin Robbins.

Robbins attempted to flee when he was asked to place his hands on Robinson's car and was arrested. He fought with officers until backup officers from York and the sheriff's department arrived to assist.

After Robbins was arrested, he was found to be carrying two loaded revolvers, which were confiscated, Robinson reported.

Chief Robinson and another officer received minor injuries during the fight, but didn't require medical attention.

Robbins was charged with resisting arrest and several other pending charges. He was taken to Moss Justice Center.
