1 in custody after home invasion, police chase

Posted: Updated: July 24, 2013 06:49 AM

Metro police were led on a chase after responding to a home invasion call in north Nashville early Wednesday morning.

Around 3 a.m., multiple suspects broke into a home in the 4500 block of Clarksville Pike and threatened the residents with a semi-automatic handgun.

The suspects began stealing items and loading them into an SUV outside. However, a resident was able to call police.

When an officer arrived, the suspects fled on foot and left the SUV behind.

A short time later, police received a separate call about a suspicious vehicle at a nearby park.

An unmarked police car followed the suspects through several north Nashville neighborhoods. Along the way, several people bailed from the car and police were able to arrest one woman.

The officer called for back up and attempted to stop the vehicle when a pursuit began. The pursuit continued through north Nashville onto Interstate 40 and Briley Parkway and reached speeds up to 90 miles-an-hour.

Once exiting Briley Parkway, another suspect jumped out of the vehicle and ran away before the driver attempted to slam into an officer's car head-on.

Authorities decided to call off the chase at the intersection of Hinkle and Panorama drives. They felt it was too dangerous to continue.

The woman in custody is being questioned by police.

Officials told Nashville's News 2 that since the two events happened subsequently, they are investigating the possibility both incidents are connected.
