A man and woman are in custody after leading sheriff’s deputies on a high speed chase Sunday morning near Interstate 80 near Sacramento.
Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputies were leaving a call on Wright Street near Edison Avenue in north Sacramento about 9 a.m. Sunday, say sheriff’s officials, when they heard gunfire and alerted other deputies in the area.
Almost immediately, the deputies saw a vehicle speeding down Edison and past the deputies’ cruiser, officials said. A brief chase ensued, but officers who joined the chase laid a tack strip on the onramp to westbound Interstate 80 at Madison Avenue, disabling the vehicle.
Deputies found a handgun in the car, and the unidentified woman behind the wheel and her male passenger were taken into custody. Both had outstanding warrants, according to sheriff’s officials.

Deputies returned to the original scene at Yellowstone Lane and Wright Street to find shell casings and a bullet hole in the wall of a home there. No one was hurt in the shooting or chase.
