With the help of witnesses, officers were able to locate the suspect in his vehicle. The suspect refused to stop his vehicle for the officer and led police on a chase through Waveland and into Bay St. Louis. The chase ended when the suspect’s car wrecked into a fence on St. Francis Street in Bay St. Louis. The suspect then reportedly fled on foot into a nearby house, where police were able to take him into custody before he escaped out the back door.

Police say the driver ran from the crash site and into a nearby home. Officers caught up with him as he tried to leave through the back door.

Alexander-Grace is charged with aggravated assault — domestic violence and failure to yield when an officer signals, which is a felony.

The shooting victim was taken to an area hospital and then airlifted to another facility. His condition is unknown.
