KELSO, Wash. (AP) - Police say three King County, Washington, men suspected in a fatal shooting are in custody following a high-speed police chase from Oregon into Washington.

Gresham, Oregon, police say a man was shot to death Friday afternoon near an elementary school.

Police on Saturday identified the suspects as 23-year-old Rony Celis of Renton, 20-year-old Charles Moimoi of Seatac, and 18-year-old Clayton Harrell of Des Moines. They were booked into Cowlitz County Jail.

The suspects reportedly fled the scene in a car and headed north into Washington state.

Police pursued the vehicle as they crossed through three Washington counties.

The suspect’s car was slowed by a Cowlitz County deputy using spike strips on northbound Interstate 5 near Kelso. A Washington State Patrol trooper also stopped the car by ramming into it.
