MOORHEAD – Four men were arrested early today after police responded to a call regarding a disturbance involving a firearm at a south Moorhead residence.

According to written information released by Moorhead police:

Officers from the Moorhead Police Department, the Clay County Sheriff’s Office and the Dilworth Police Department responded to a call about 2:08 a.m. this morning to 1321 14th St. S., in Moorhead regarding a disturbance involving a gun.

A vehicle was seen leaving the area and a pursuit ensued when officers tried to stop it.

After a chase that lasted about 15 city blocks, the pursued vehicle left the road and became disabled.

Police allege four men arrested a short time later ran from the vehicle. Police identified the four as: Emmanual X. Kennedy, 22; Curtis M. Nichols, 21; Ermin Adzemovic, 19; and Trei Hobert Patrick Johnson, 20.

The men were being held in the Clay County Jail pending formal charges from the ongoing investigation, police said.
