BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama man accused of shooting at Birmingham police as he fled a traffic stop has been charged with attempted murder.

Police told news outlets Wednesday that 25-year-old Anthony Jonell Moore also is charged with discharging firearms into an occupied vehicle in the Monday shooting. Police say officers attempted to pull over an apparently speeding vehicle that night, but the driver fled.

They say Moore fired more than a dozen shots at the pursing officers, who returned fire. One officer was treated for minor injuries.

WAYNESBORO, Tenn. (AP) — Authorities say a man has been charged with evading arrest after leading police on a chase from Alabama to Tennessee.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said in a news release Monday that Kyle Lee Jones fled a traffic stop by police in St. Florian, Alabama, on July 8, 2018. The state police agency says police pursued Jones through northern Alabama and into south Tennessee.

TBI says a Wayne County officer exited his car and ordered Jones to stop. Agents say Jones swerved toward the officer, who shot and hit the car.
