D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) -

Two suspects led Biloxi police on a chase from I-10 into D’Iberville on Tuesday afternoon.

Biloxi police said an officer attempted to make a traffic stop near the 45 mile marker on I-10 when the driver of the car sped off east toward D’Iberville.

The driver ran red lights and barely missed other vehicles after making it to Popp’s Ferry Rd., according to Sgt. O’Neil Adams, with the Biloxi Police Department.

The driver eventually slowed down and his passenger, identified as 26-year-old Leo Raken-Turent Magee, of Gulfport, bailed out of the moving car. D’Iberville police officers arrested Magee after a short foot chase.

The driver, identified as 26-year-old Shadryck Lashaw Brown, of Arizona, went a little farther before taking off on foot and pointing a gun at the officer.

A K9 apprehended Brown without a shot being fired, according to Adams. Brown and Magee were taken to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

The chase and arrests shut down Popp’s Ferry Rd. near the Gilbert Mason Head Start in the early afternoon. D’Iberville Elementary School was also placed on lockdown as a precaution for a short time.

Adams said Brown is charged with felony eluding, felony simple assault on a police officer, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He also had an active felony warrant in another state, but the issuing agency declined to place a hold on Brown.

Brown’s bond was set at $225,000.

Adams said Magee was not charged in relation to this incident, but he had four active felony warrants in Mississippi and Louisiana.
