IT ALL STARTED WITH A HOUSE

BURGLARY, STEPHANIE. AUTHORITIES

CHASED DOWN THOSE THREE SUSPECTS

AND

NOT BEFORE SHOTS WERE FIRED.

AT A HOME OVER ON

CHILDRESS LANE" MADISON COUNTY

SHERIFF RANDY TUCKER SAYS WHEN

AUTHORITIES ARRIVED AT THE HOUSE

-- THE SUSPECTS JUMPED IN THEIR

CAR -- AND TOOK

OFF. POLICE SHOT AT THE CAR --

HITTING ONE OF THE SUSPECTS IN

THE

BACK -- THEN SPED AFTER THEM.

THEY FINALLY CAUGHT THEM ON

HIGHWAY 49 --

WHEN THE CAR STARTED TO SLOW

DOWN.

SHERIFF RANDY TUCKER/MADISON

COUNTY: "MAYBE THEIR

TRANSMISSION WENT OUT OR THE

MOTOR BLEW UP OR SOMETHING IT

WAS SOME TYPE OF MECHANICAL

FAILURE" TUCKER SAYS, AFTER

WHAT THEY FOUND IN THE MENS' CAR

-- THEY'RE GLAD THINGS DIDN'T

GET MORE DANGEROUS.

SHERIFF RANDY TUCKER/MADISON
