A suspect who lead authorities on a chase through two counties Monday was reported to be in stable condition at a Tyler hospital Tuesday, recovering from wounds resulting from the incident.

Few details were being released Tuesday by officials as the incident is under investigation by Texas Rangers.

The man’s name was not released by officials.

Officials did say that the chase started in Wood County as a domestic disturbance call that turned into a vehicle pursuit by Wood County authorities. Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office and authorities were notified by Wood County officials as the chase continued west into Hopkins County. The pursuit concluded on FM 269, just off FM 69, in the Black Oak community in far southeastern Hopkins County. Officials converged at the scene.

The suspect was reported to have been injured, although officials declined to note the type of injury or how the injury occurred. They did report, however, that shots were fired during the chase.

A medical helicopter was requested; one landed near the site where the crash ended in Black Oak and flew the man to a Tyler hospital for treatment. He was in stable condition in the intensive care unit Tuesday morning, according to reports.

No officers were injured.
