FAYETTE, Ala. (AP) - Authorities in west Alabama say two Ohio teenagers are in custody after a car chase that ended with police shooting and injuring one of the teens.

Walker County Sheriff Jim Underwood told WBRC-TV that authorities responding to a 911 call Wednesday night pursued a vehicle into two nearby counties. Underwood says the car was occupied by 19-year-old McKinney Alexander and driven by a 17-year-old female, both from Youngstown, Ohio.

Underwood says a Fayette County deputy tried stopping the vehicle, but it rammed his car, and then broke through a roadblock and tried to hit the officer, who fired and struck Alexander. He was treated at a local hospital and released. The female will be charged as an adult with two counts of attempted murder of a police officer.
