The Dougherty siblings, who are accused of shooting at police and robbing a Georgia bank, were captured on Wednesday in Colorado.
The three fugitives were caught after they crashed their car into a highway barrier during a chase, Colorado State Patrol say. They were found near Walsenburg, Colo. Wednesday morning.
Ryan Edward Dougherty, 21; Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26; and Lee Grace Dougherty, 29, were the targets of a nationwide search that began Aug. 2 following their alleged crime spree. The siblings were found in a car matching the description of the one they were last seen in, according to authorities.
Colorado Police say they got credible information that people matching the description of the Dougherty siblings were spotted near downtown Colorado Springs on Tuesday afternoon, as reported by 9&10 News.
The Associated Press reported that Lee Dougherty was shot in the leg after the crash when she pointed a gun at an officer. All three suspects were being treated for injuries at a hospital before being transferred to Pueblo County Jail, according to that article.
"Ladies and gentleman, I'm proud to say we won," Pasco County, Fla., Sheriff Chris Nocco said. "We continuously said that if these three fugitives wanted a battle with law enforcement, we would win that battle. And that's what happened today."
Nocco called the Doughertys "very, very dangerous people" and their capture a tremendous relief.
