JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A police chase in St. Augustine ends with a bizarre twist early Monday morning but police were still able to take all three suspects into custody.
After crashing their car thanks to some well-placed stop sticks, 28-year-old Tyrus Kornegy had to be airlifted to a hospital with gunshot wound to the backand at last check was in critical condition. Commander Chuck Mulligan with the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office says they checked deputies guns and none of them were used.
"Somewhere in that process, one of the suspects had a firearm in the backseat and at the time of the vehicle crash discharged his firearm, striking the driver of the vehicle in the back," said Cmdr. Mulligan.
This all started around 8:30 p.m. on Sunday night when the three suspects held up a Kangaroo station and then tried to flee from deputies already in the area. Police identified one other suspect as 23-year-old Dehsawn Perkins but have not named the third.
All three suspects are in police custody.
