Four armed Roosevelt home invasion suspects, one of whom fired a gunshot at the victim, led Nassau County police officers on a chase that ended in a crash, authorities said.

Aurnree McBrown and three other suspects who have yet to be apprehended allegedly entered Washington Avenue home, forced the victim into his bedroom and stole $1,700 worth of electronics at 3:21 a.m. Monday, police said.

One of the suspects fired a gunshot while in the room, but the victim was not injured, police said.

The group fled the scene in a 2003 Chevy Malibu, which First Precinct officers tried to stop on Clinton Avenue, but the suspects continued on to Hausch Boulevard, where it crashed into a curb, police said.

The assailants fled the car on foot and McBrown, 46, of Bay Shore, was taken into custody on the grounds of Roosevelt High School, police said. The three others—one of whom was armed with a semi-automatic handgun—remain at large.

McBrown, who was allegedly armed with a knife, was charged with robbery and burglary. He will be arraigned Tuesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
