DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Authorities have arrested two men charged with attempted murder after the two allegedly shot at deputies during a high speed chase on I-95 in Dorchester County Tuesday night.

The Dorchester County Sheriff's Office says the incident started when deputies attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a black Acura. A sheriff's office report states that the car did not stop and a pursuit ensued.

Deputies say the suspects' car reached speeds of 100 mph during the chase. At one point, the passenger of the car opened the sunroof of the Acura and began to fire shots at the deputies' cruisers, authorities say.

According to investigators, one of the sheriff's office cruisers was able to force the suspect's car off the roadway.

Authorities say when the Acura wrecked, shots were still being fired from the suspect's vehicle. Both suspects were then caught by K-9 units. The two men were then transported to Colleton County Medical Center.

The suspects' vehicle was reported stolen out of North Carolina and weapons were recovered.

Major John Garrision says the deputies did not fire any rounds during the incident but one deputy was injured during the arrests. The suspects have not been identified with pending charges for both for failure to stop for a blue light, possession of a stolen motor vehicle and attempted murder.

If you, or someone you know, have any information regarding any crime, you are encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers. You could earn a reward up to $1,000.
