BROOKLYN - NYPD officers from the Brooklyn North Gang Division have arrested two armed teenagers after a foot chase in Bed-Stuy.

Authorities say that’s when the other teen, identified as 17-year-old Jahkim Heyward, took off running with a loaded handgun. He allegedly threw the weapon into a playground on Monroe Avenue before being caught on Tompkins Avenue.
