LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

24-year-old Ali Lara and 19-year-old Jesus Altimirano have been arrested after taking police on an early morning chase on Sunday.

Lara has been charged with driving while intoxicated, evading arrest and discharge of a firearm in a municipality while Altimirano was arrested for public intoxication and discharge of a firearm in a municipality. Court records show they live around Dallas and police are not sure if they are from the Lubbock area, according to an LPD news release. 

Around 1:15 a.m. Sunday a Lubbock Police Department officer heard gunshots in the area of Marsha Sharp and Avenue V, according to an LPD news release. The officer tried to stop a Chevy SUV he thought was connected to the shots, but Lara refused to stop and initiated a pursuit while Altamirano was the passenger.

While fleeing, the suspect hit a vehicle on Mac Davis Lane, which injured a person, and kept driving on through the Texas Tech campus. He drove through Drive of Champions and onto the eastbound lanes of Marsha Sharp.

Police then believe the SUV stalled for a bit while on the freeway and officer attempted to perform a felony stop on the vehicle. But the suspect was able to start the SUV again and fled from officers.

He continued on Marsha Sharp, pulled off near Avenue Q and made a stop in the parking lot of a Burger King at 1804 4th St., where police were able to apprehend both suspects.

The only injuries were those of the hit and run victim on Mac Davis, but those were minor and the person, who has not been named, was not transported to the hospital.
