CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - Authorities have identified the two Cedar Rapids officers who shot and wounded a man at the end of a chase.

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation said Monday that officers Jeremy Depies and Brandon Tinta were involved in the shooting.

Cedar Rapids police say the chase began shortly after 2 a.m. Sunday when officers noticed an orange BMW driving recklessly. The BMW drove the wrong way down a street and turned into an alley before crashing into a telephone pole. When officers approached the vehicle, it drove toward them, so they began to shoot.

The driver wounded by the gunfire has been identified as 28-year-old Kyle Orth. He was treated at a hospital before being taken to jail.

The shooting remains under investigation.
