Suspect being chased by police runs inside Paso Robles Walmart

A suspect in a police chase ran into the Paso Robles Walmart store around 4:45 p.m. Wednesday after fleeing from a narcotics bust in the 100 block of Niblick Road.

Police followed the suspect into the store at 180 Niblick Road and customers there called 911 saying gunshots had been fired, according to police. However, police later determined no shots were fired.

Before the chase, Paso Robles Police assisted Santa Barbara narcotics agents on an enforcement action in the 100 block of Niblick Road. Multiple suspects then attempted to flee the area on foot, police said.

All the suspects were apprehended without incident, police said, and the Walmart store was never closed. The names of the suspects have not been released.

No injuries were reported.
