Both suspects arrested in robbery, chase, shooting
KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — Authorities say both suspects wanted in an armed robbery, high-speed chase, crash and attempted home invasion in southeastern Wisconsin are in custody.
Sheriff’s officials say two men armed with handguns robbed a gas station in Mount Pleasant Tuesday night. Racine County sheriff’s deputies and Mount Pleasant police began pursuing the suspects who were in a stolen car. The chase about 10:30 p.m. continued on Interstate 94 into Kenosha County where tire deflation devices were used. The suspects exited the interstate at Bristol where they crashed into a police squad car and ran from their vehicle.
About 4 a.m. Wednesday a Bristol resident called authorities to say he shot at a man trying to break into his home. The suspect ran away. Sheriff’s officials say that wounded suspect was found riding a bike along I-94 and was arrested. A second suspect was arrested Wednesday near where the chase ended. Both are 19 and are Illinois residents.
