The victim reported being shot at by a group of people in a brown Suburban. Deputies attempted to intercept the suspected vehicle, but the driver refused to pull over.

The Suburban then weaved through both lanes of traffic before running off the road and eventually stopping near St. Wendel. All four occupants were removed from the vehicle.

The driver, 20 year old Jacob Whalen of Long Prairie, was arrested for fleeing police, and a passenger, 20 year old Keith Kern of Swanville, was arrested for three counts of second degree assault. Both were arrested.

The incident is under investigation.
