PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A Rapid City man is facing numerous charges after a car chase in Pierre during which a police officer fired his weapon.

The chase involving more than half a dozen police vehicles happened Friday afternoon after officers spotted Alvin Chambers, who was wanted on a drug-related warrant.

Police say an officer at one point fired his gun at the tires of the suspect’s vehicle after Chambers allegedly rammed two squad vehicles. No injuries were reported.

Chambers eventually was arrested on the warrant and on several other charges including aggravated assault on law enforcement. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.

Local, state and federal authorities are continuing to investigate the incident.
