Two suspects in a stolen Jeep sped up to a roadblock made up of sheriff's department squad cars, but they would not surrender.

A wild 20-mile chase in North Carolina ended the hard way.

Two suspects in a stolen Jeep sped up to a roadblock made up of sheriff's department squad cars, but they would not surrender.

They veered off the road and raced across a field as deputies opened fire.

The deputies then took off in hot pursuit.

The gunfire had flattened the Jeep's tires and it stopped a short distance down the road.

The two suspects were taken into custody, one with a minor wound.

They are suspected of three home invasions and four vehicle thefts.
