ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - Two suspects have been arrested after they led law enforcement on a high-speed chase that started in Baker County, ended in Albany and also involved law enforcement being shot at, according to the Albany Police Department (APD).

Albany police responded to the 1100 block of Van Deman Street around 12:30 p.m after the chase started with law enforcement in Baker County.

The suspects, Roger Gardner, 40, and Jessica Arnold, 32, were in a stolen car and hid in the woods after Gardner shot at Baker Co. law enforcement, APD confirmed.
