LUBBOCK, Texas -

Update 2:01 p.m. Friday - 

UPDATE: The man and woman identified in the story below are now in the Lubbock County Detention Center. According to the DPS, Danny Geer Jr, 40, of Sanford; and Khilyn LaShae Shouse, 19, of Borger both face a charge of aggravated assault on a public servant, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and driving away from an arrest. 

The Texas Rangers are leading the investigation, helped by Texas Highway Patrol Crash Reconstruction Troopers. 

Posted Thursday evening - A high speed chase with shots fired toward police leads to two arrests. The chase began just before 11 a.m. in Southeast Hale County and crossed into Lubbock county near Idalou following back roads adjacent to cotton fields.

"While in pursuit the suspect vehicle did shoot at the deputies," said Sergeant John Gonzalez with the Texas Department of Public Safety. 

Deputies from both counties and swat teams converged on a single plot scouring it to find the suspects. 

A woman emerged from the pick-up and gave up, but the driver tried to hide. The Lubbock County Sheriff's office and Plainview swat teams converged methodically taking about two hours to tighten the dragnet and arrested the suspect. Idalou and Abernathy police helped secure the scene while the DPS helicopter hovered over the secured zone.

"All the responders came together and it was a successful ending to something that could of been more tragic than how it ended," said Gonzalez. 

No injuries were reported at the scene and both suspects were transported by EMS to a local hospital to get checked out, a standard protocol.
