BAKER COUNTY, Fla. -- The Florida Highway Patrol and sheriff's deputies from at least four counties were led on a high-speed chase Thursday morning following an officer-involved shooting during a speeding violation traffic stop that ended in Baker County.
Terrick Shadon Lundy, 26, is in custody after he led multiple law enforcement agencies on a chase that started in Madison County and ended 12 miles of west of the City of Macclenny in Baker County, according to Baker County Sheriff Joey Dobson.
Prior to the chase, an altercation occurred during the traffic stop and then shots were fired, according to a release from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
Lundy eventually crashed into a wooded area in Baker County on Interstate 10, Dobson detailed.
It is unknown if Lundy lost control of the vehicle or if the vehicle was pitted by law enforcement.
Lundy allegedly fled on foot into a wooded area south of I-10, according to FHP. The passenger traveling with Lundy, 31-year-old Ronnie Bernard Williams, was apprehended inside the vehicle and taken to an area hospital for treatment.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation and FHP conducted an aerial search for Lundy during the nearly three hour manhunt.
FHP shut down I-10 Eastbound at Exit 324/Sanderson and asked drivers avoid using I-10 while the search was ongoing. The stretch of interstate re-opened around 1:40 p.m. Thursday.
The chase started in Madison County, went through Suwannee and Columbia Counties and came to an end in Baker County after Madison County Sheriff's deputies attempted to stop the suspect for speeding, according to Sgt. Dylan Bryan with FHP.
"He [Lundy] just took off," said Bryan.
At the request of the Madison County Sheriff's Office, the FDLE is investigating the officer use of force that led to the crash.
Lundy is being charged with felony fleeing and eluding, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and aggravated assault. Charges against Williams are pending, according to the FHP.
