SOLON, Iowa (AP) - A two-county police chase in eastern Iowa has ended in the backyard of a house in Solon.

Deputies say two teenagers and three men from Cedar Rapids were taken into custody Wednesday night. They face a variety of charges.

The five were in a pickup that deputies say matched the description of a truck involved in a Cedar Rapids shooting. Linn County officers chased the truck into adjacent Johnson County. The truck hit a children’s playhouse as it crashed into the backyard. No children were inside the playhouse.

The five males in the truck tried to run from the scene, but they were soon captured. One Linn County deputy injured a shoulder during the foot chase.
