Two Suspects in Custody After Car Chase

Posted: Updated:
LAUREL -

After a foot and car chase Monday afternoon, two suspects are in custody.

Law enforcement responded to a report of suspicious activity at the Laurel Walmart to find two men Laurel police say they've been looking for since Saturday. Authorities say shots were fired during the event.

Laurel Police started searching for 18-year-old Austin Allery and 19-year-old Hayden Lowry Saturday night, after the two allegedly rolled a stolen Dodge pickup from Miles City and firearms were located in the vehicle.

Captain Bill Michaelis with the Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office says they began searching farm buildings and houses near Laurel Monday morning. But, then received another call.

"Laurel PD received a report that the possible people from the stolen vehicle were from the Walmart area on South Washington Street in Laurel," he said. "Our units were in the area just clearing from this scene so we went to assist Laurel Police Department at that time."

Police chased the suspects on foot across the Walmart parking lot and took one into custody. Montana Highway Patrol says the other suspect allegedly stole a truck at gunpoint and took off.

"Headed right towards different law enforcement agencies, eluded several," he said. "Laurel police was in pursuit. Highway Patrol, ourselves, Stillwater Sheriff's Office set up over here in case he came back this way. We actually deployed spikes over on laurel airport road and deflated two tires on his vehicle."

The suspect crashed on Old Highway 10, just outside of Laurel. He was taken to a hospital for his injuries.

We will continue following this story and bring you updates as they become available.
