Two men are in jail after a police chase that spanned two counties and included gunshots.

Officers arrested 26-year-old Lee Underwood and 46-year-old Thomas Mosier early Monday morning.

Elkhart Police say they were initially called about someone trying to break into a business on Bypass Road.

They followed tire tracks and eventually found the suspects' vehicle.

Police say during a chase Mosier shot at them with a high powered rifle.

That chase ended when the suspect's vehicle crashed in Cass County and the men ran.

Police say they stole a second car and crashed it near County Road 15 and County Road 42 in Elkhart County.

Both men were arrested after trying to get into nearby homes.

No one was hurt but a squad car was hit by bullets.
