Three suspects face a range of charges after officers were injured when a vehicle rammed police cruisers early Tuesday in Winnipeg, said police.

Around 12:30 a.m., officers from the tactical support team and other units tried to carry out a traffic stop of a vehicle near Antrim Road and Rockspur Street, in the East Kildonan area.

Police said they were in the area investigating the biker gang war when officers spotted three known suspects and tried to pull them over.

The vehicle made evasive maneuvers and hit three cruisers, said police. Officers managed to take three suspects into custody.

Three officers were also taken to hospital in stable condition following the vehicle collisions. Two have been treated and released, while a third remains in hospital with a serious upper body injury.

CTV News has learned the suspects are members of the Vendettas, the support crew of the Rock Machine motorcycle gang. It's believed they were on their way to target a man believed to be an associate of the rival Redlined Support Crew, when they were intercepted by police.

"Our priority right now is to deal with these situations as they occur, and to effectively and as quickly as possible identify anyone who's involved," said Const. Natalie Aitken from Winnipeg police.

A man who didn't want to be identified said officers told him he was the intended target.

Police said a loaded handgun was found inside the suspects' vehicle.

"They just said our lives were in danger…they told me that it's in my best interest not to reside here anymore," said the man. He said police told him the reason he was targeted is because it's believed he's an associate of the Redlined Support Crew.

"I am not involved in any type of gang or anything like that," said the man, adding he planned to follow the police's advice to move out.

Joseph Jordan Carl Choken, 19, Guy Wesley Vernon Stevenson, 21, both of no fixed address, face a variety of weapons-related charges, including possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose, said officers.

Choken also faces charges for an outstanding warrant of arrest and possessing a firearm contrary to a probation order. Stevenson also faces charges for breach of probation.

A 23-year-old woman from Lorette faces charges for not having a license to possess a firearm and not having a registration certificate for a firearm.

All the officers injured in the incident are expected to be okay, said police.
