A Tennessee law enforcement agency has released dramatic footage of a vehicle pursuit turning into a shootout.
The dash camera video, released by the Metro Nashville Police Department, shows Darrien Williams leading multiple law enforcement agencies in a chase from Rutherford to Davidson County.
The chase initially began after Williams was reported to have discharged a firearm in his Smyrna apartment. When approached by Smyrna PD, Williams fled, and LVPD was called in to assist.
Williams eventually came to a stop after being rammed by an LVPD vehicle and engaged officers, firing several shots.
During the gun battle, Williams abandoned his three small children, who had been with him in the vehicle during the chase. The children were sent to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital for evaluation and eventually released.
After the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department set up a perimeter, Williams was eventually located and forced to surrender.
According to the Tennessean, Williams was charged with attempted murder of a police officer, felony evading arrest and three counts of child endangerment. His bond was set at $309,500.
