One person is in custody following a police pursuit and wreck Wednesday afternoon.
A high speed chase began on Woodrow Road earlier today, and ended before 3:30 this afternoon in a crash on Quaker Avenue at 82nd Street.
The pursuit was carried out by Department of Public Safety troopers with assistance from the Lubbock Police Department.
Two suspects bailed out of the vehicle at Loop 493 and Woodrow Road, and were held by Lubbock-Cooper ISD police for DPS.
The suspect that wrecked the SUV ran into Cattle Baron at 82nd Street and Quaker Avenue and changed clothes before attempting to escape out the back door, where he was arrested.
A gun was fired through the roof of the Dodge pickup, but it’s unclear if it was on purpose or by accident during the man’s escape.
Patrons and staff were evacuated out of the restaurant at one point during the skirmish.
