BATON ROUGE - Agents with the Special Response Team, a tactical unit of the city's police force, arrested a man wanted for initiating an officer-involved shooting this weekend.

Miketrez Jones, 22, was apprehended Tuesday. Police said he pointed a gun at an officer who was chasing him after fleeing a traffic crash Saturday. The officer fired a shot toward Jones, but it did not hit him.

Jones was booked into jail on aggravated assault upon a peace officer with a firearm and resisting a police officer by force or violence charges.

A second person, Jacob Washington, was previously arrested for principal to those charges and obstruction of justice charges.

The incident happened in North Baton Rouge and was first reported by WBRZ and WBRZ.com Saturday.
