Two suspects are in jail following a dramatic police pursuit that erupted in gunfire after two suspects realized they were being tailed by undercover officers.
Bristol, VA police arrested 22-year-old Jonathan Vinson and charged him with accessory to attempted capital murder, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
A 17-year-old in the getaway vehicle has been charged with attempted capital murder after undercover detectives say the passenger rolled down the window, leaned out of the window and opened fire at the detective's car -- striking it.
That chase began in Bristol, VA, and quickly crossed state lines before ending near King University after the suspect's Jeep slammed into a fire hydrant.
Investigators say both suspects fled from the car. Bristol investigators told News Channel 11 the detective fired shots at Vinson and he quickly surrendered.
Moments later, the Bristol, Virginia SWAT team captured the teen in a nearby alley.Both suspects are currently being held in Tennessee, awaiting extradition to Virginia.
