Shooting incident leads to car chase, two injured, one in custody

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

The Laurel Police Department responded to a call Thursday afternoon regarding a shooting incident on Queensboro Avenue and South 11th Street.

While police were approaching the scene, a vehicle fled the area.   

Police went on a pursuit until the suspects pulled over near Sandersville. 

When police approached the vehicle, officials noticed that the two men in the car appeared to have been shot. They were transported to a local hospital and are in stable condition. 

According to Police Chief Tyrone Stewart, a suspect is in custody. Stewart said the incident stems from an altercation days before between the suspects.
