PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say a 37-year-old man sought on domestic violence and other charges was arrested after allegedly shooting at pursuing officers before and during a chase on local streets and three metro Phoenix freeways on Wednesay.

Peoria police said Bryan Lamb first shot at officers trying to arrest him at a shopping center near Interstate 17 and then again after the ensuing pursuit headed first onto I-17 and then Interstate 10 and Loop 202. Police said Lamb was jailed after being taken to a hospital for treatment of dog-bite injuries resulting from his arrest when the chase ended. Nobody else was injured.
