FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - Two men are in police custody following a vehicle pursuit late Tuesday night.
It all started with a shooting in the 1400 block of Colerick Street around 11 p.m.
Residents at a home on Colerick Street told NewsChannel 15 as they were walking out the door a man showed up at the doorstep bleeding and asking for help. The residents said the man was shot in the arm during a drive-by shooting.
"I don't care who it is. My worst enemy could be shot and I'm not just going to let him sit there and bleed to death," good samaritan Matthew Hannon said.
The shooting victim, Jaquan Wade, was taken to the hospital in fair condition.
Two vans were damaged during the shooting. One van had a flat tire from a bullet and another van had several bullet holes on the side and in the hood.
Police said through witness statements a grey or silver colored pickup truck was leaving the area just after the shooting.
Fort Wayne Police Department spokesperson Michael Joyner said a gang unit noticed a vehicle with the same description speeding in the area.
Joyner said an officer attempted to make a traffic stop. The driver of the pickup truck did not stop and led officers on a chase, but eventually crashed into a tree at the intersection of Schele Avenue and Holly Avenue.
After the crash, the occupants of the vehicle ran into a wooded area between Schele Avenue and Logan Avenue. Several Fort Wayne officers, including two K-9 officers, held a perimeter around the woods and eventually closed in on the suspects.
K-9 officers Bach and Ado helped with the search and K-9 Bach eventually located two men hiding in the woods.
Police did find two semi-automatic guns at the crash. Joyner said one gun was stolen. According to police reports, the pickup truck was not stolen, but being driven by a family member of the owner.
Both men were interviewed by detectives and transported to the Allen County Jail Wednesday morning.
