Three Tennessee people are currently in Jackson County Jail, charged with attempted murder.
On Dec. 26, at approximately 2:15 a.m., a Bridgeport Police officer observed a Grey Kia Sorento traveling on Alabama Highway 72 West at a slow rate of speed. Upon further observation the Kia turned off onto a gravel drive and then back onto Highway 72 West and head East before finally crossing over the median into Highway 72 East in the correct lane and head toward Tennessee.
The Bridgeport officer activated his emergency lights to check on the driver approximately half a mile from County Road 75. The vehicle failed to stop which resulted in a chase, exceeding over 80 MPH. Upon approaching Highway 277 the Kia ran the red light and headed East.
During the pursuit through Bridgeport at rates of speed exceeding 100 MPH, the suspects in the vehicle began firing several gunshots at the Bridgeport Officer. As the chase led back into Stevenson, the suspects began firing several shots at the Stevenson Officer. With the assistance of Stevenson Police Department, the Kia was disabled.
After the chase ended several handguns were located inside the vehicle. The vehicle’s vin indicated that the vehicle had been reported stolen in Clarksville, Tennessee.
