The suspect who took the deputy's vehicle struck Charmaine Brown's parked car.

"I didn't see anything. I was in the house, but I heard a boom, boom, boom noise and I came outside after that," Brown said.

After striking Brown's vehicle, the suspect then fled the seen on foot, and authorities began using K9 units and a helicopter to search for all three.

Police have since arrested two of the suspects in connection to the incident.

One of the men was taken into custody in Samuel Hunt's backyard, while the other was found hiding in a trash can.

"The way he apprehended him, he told him to get on the ground and if he moved he would shoot him dead," Hunt said.

No identities were immediately released.
