3 men arrested after high-speed chase

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Three men are in custody after a chase that ended Wednesday afternoon in a vacant field at Augusta Avenue and Newell Street.

Lorenzo Lazant Hall, 34, and Devante Hall, 19, of the 200 block of Eagle Street, and Terry Barnard Bell Jr., 29, of Rincon, were taken into custody.

The chase started at about noon in Rincon, where police saw a red Cadillac in an area where several burglaries have been reported. When police approached the Cadillac, those in the car showed a pistol and drove away, according to Savannah-Chatham Metro Police.

Rincon police followed the car into Port Wentworth, where it rammed a Port Wentworth police car that was attempting to stop it, according to SCMPD. Garden City police set out stop sticks in Port Wentworth to puncture the tires. A tire was punctured on the Cadillac and on a Port Wentworth police car that was chasing it.

The Cadillac veered off Ga. Highway 21 onto Augusta Avenue, where Rincon Police Chief Mike Bohannon saw one of the men lean out a window and fire a gunshot at his police car that was following behind, according to SCMPD.

Bohannon used a Pursuit Intervention Technique or PIT maneuver on the Cadillac near the vacant field, sending it sideways into the field. He then drove into the field and struck the Cadillac with his patrol car, according to SCMPD.

Lorenzo Hall ran from the scene and was captured by SCMPD police several blocks away on Eagle Street near his residence.

Police from Rincon, Port Wentworth, Garden City and SCMPD as well as deputies from Effingham and Chatham counties responded to the scene.

Savannah-Chatham Metro Police said Chatham County sheriff's deputies were requested to search for the gun that was believed to have been dropped between the crash scene and Eagle Street.

Rincon and SCMPD officers are deliberating charges to be filed. The investigations are continuing.
