The suspects chased the pair and the suspect with the gun then called out the victim's name and fired two rounds from the weapon, hitting the victim and missing the other person, according to police.   

The suspects fled and hid in an apartment whose resident allegedly helped them in trying to conceal evidence. 

San Rafael police learned of the suspects' location and, with the help of Marin County sheriff's deputies, surrounded the apartment building and contacted the suspects, who eventually all came out and were arrested without further incident, police said.
