SAN ANTONIO — An 18-year-old and 16-year-old were arrested, charged with evading arrest, the Bexar County Sheriff's Office said.

One of the suspects had a stolen firearm, authorities said. The 18-year-old faces charges of evading arrest and possession of the stolen firearm. The 16-year-old male juvenile faces charges of evading arrest.
