    The initial call stated that four armed men came into the store and assaulted a clerk while robbing the store.

    The clerk was taken to a local hospital to get checked out and is expected to be okay.

    Police immediately conducted a manhunt for the suspects, which led them to an area in the southeast section of the city. As police got near a white Chevy vehicle, the suspects escaped and shots were fired at a Brockton police cruiser.

    It's unclear how many shots were fired, but no one was hit or injured.

    Police captured three of the suspects after they abandoned the vehicle.

    Multiple law enforcement agencies are assisting with the search, including police from Stoughton, East and West Bridgewater, as well as Massachusetts State Police.
