TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) — An armed robbery suspect now also faces a preliminary attempted murder charge following a pursuit early Friday in which shots were fired at Terre Haute police.
Twenty-five-year-old Damon White of Indianapolis was arrested following a nearly 20-minute chase in which police say more than a dozen rounds were fired at officers.
Terre Haute Police Chief Shawn Keen says officers attempted a traffic stop about 3:40 a.m. on a vehicle suspected of being involved in an earlier report of shots fired. He says the driver refused to stop and someone in the vehicle began shooting at police. A 17-year-old Fishers male in the car also was arrested on an attempted murder charge.
