Witness, robbery suspect exchange gunfire in chase

Montgomery County Sherrif Office

The Montgomery County sheriff said a fleeing robbery suspect exchanged gunfire with a witness who had chased him from the scene. The sheriff told news outlets that the Tuesday incident was captured on video.

Montgomery County Sheriff Derrick Cunningham told reporters during a news conference that the 16-year-old robbery suspect was arrested Tuesday night when he went to the emergency room in a neighboring county for a gunshot wound.

Cunningham said the suspect fled from the store on foot but was confronted by a witness in a pickup truck who followed the teen. He said the 16-year-old shot at the driver, who then returned fire.
