WINDHAM, N.H. (AP) - Police say a pursuit that started with a man shooting out of a vehicle in Massachusetts ended about 20 miles away in New Hampshire when the vehicle crashed and the driver and a passenger were arrested.

The chase started in Haverhill, Massachusetts, around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. Police say one man was shooting at an unknown target but then started shooting at them after they gave chase.

The vehicle crashed in Windham, New Hampshire. WMUR-TV reports the passenger, 21-year-old Javonnie Chambers, of Berlin, New Hampshire, wanted to plead guilty to resisting arrest, but the prosecution declined to accept it. Chambers agreed to return to Massachusetts to face charges of assault with intent to murder.

The driver, 20-year-old Manuel Antonio Soto, of Haverhill, Massachusetts, is charged in that state with 12 counts of assault with intent to murder. He’s being represented by a public defender.
