He then led police on a chase that included stealing a truck at gunpoint and even shooting at police officers. Gilmore was last seen at 98th and Indiana around 1pm Saturday. That's when the chase was called off. US Marshals were called to the motel in Burleson and had the man held up for at least 6 or 7 hours.
